Independent practice: Tower of Power

After completing adaptive and lesson-aligned fluency and guided practice, students demonstrate understanding in the independent practice portion of a Zearn digital lesson, called the  Tower of Power. Students need to answer all of the questions correctly to complete the Tower of Power and unlock the next Independent Digital Lesson

If students make a mistake in a Tower of Power problem, a “Boost” breaks down the question into smaller steps with more supportive manipulatives to allow students to understand and correct their mistakes. Students then have a chance to demonstrate their learning with a new problem. If students continue to struggle in the Tower of Power after multiple attempts, their teacher receives an alert in the Tower Alerts Report, enabling them to provide tailored, differentiated support for that student.
