Leslie and I just returned from NCTM Las Vegas where we presented a K-5 gallery workshop entitled: It’s All in the Process: Strategies for Addressing Reasoning—Elementary. We shared an NRich task – Magic Vs” as well as one that I created and have
One of the interesting observations that we made was that the most popular question we got was “Can we have a list of the questions you asked?!” That is a question that we hear a lot here at TLJ when we work with educators at all levels.
Effective questioning is one way to easily differentiate for students, however it does require some planning. This has prompted Leslie and I to write a whitepaper, Opportunities for Questioning: Moving Both the Learner and the Learning Forward, that shares four opportunities for questioning that exist in any classroom as students are engaged in rich activities. You can read the whitepaper on our publication page.
Leslie and I have realized that the strategies we shared in our first book series have applications across all subject areas. Be on the lookout as we begin our next book series on applying these strategies to all content areas as well as expanding strategies for writing and questioning.
