Think – Pair - Share ThinkPairShare Make a prediction of the number of students in A-K, L-N, O-T, U-Z. Also make prediction for where girls and boys will be in each area. Make predictions for the areas of comprehension and fluency. Record your assumption behind your prediction. (ex: I believe 20% of the students are at levels O-T because (this is the assumption part) I have a very strong class and they were all at grade level or above so below should be small.
