    I have a simple procedure in my classroom- always answer word problems in complete sentences. (By “word problems” I mean any problem expressed in a context, rather than asking for a computation. “Find the mean of 35, 87, and 92” is not a word problem while “What is Brian’s mean score if his papers so far have been marked 35, 87, and 92?” is.) It’s difficult to get every student on board, but once the habit is developed, it’s great reinforcement for the ELA department.
