how many new strategy do I introduce from the Cafe menu in a week? I am using the 6-5-4-3 rule how many do I introduce a day? Should it only take me a few weeks to introduce the 6-5-4-3?






I’m not sure there is one correct response to your question, but here are a couple of ideas to consider. I don’t think you need to be in a rush to introduce all the strategies.
As you see your students exhibiting a fair amount of success with a strategy you’ve introduced, then you would decide what strategy to introduce next. I think it may take many weeks to introduce all the strategies you are thinking of.
Here’s a link to a video and article about introducing new strategies.
