Makes Sense Strategies

Makes Sense Strategies is a collection of powerful techniques and tools for differentiating curriculum, planning and implementing instruction, and assessing student learning.  In part, it's a curriculum because students learn new strategies and thinking skills when teachers employ the MSS strategies.  The Makes Sense approach is a teaching philosophy that brings more focus and direction to how children should be taught.  MSS also includes strategies and tools for planning, implementing, and assessing innovative school reform efforts.
