    I do agree with raising hands not always being beneficial. I am careful with when I use hand raising and ask my students to put their raised thumb to their chest to give the rest of the class time to think and get to an answer. After watching this video, I realize that there are times though when intent of my asking questions does not achieve the desired results. I do find that the best formative assessment is when students are actively working in random groups on vertical non-permanent surfaces on low-floor, high-ceiling tasks. Students share so much more of their thinking in their small groups, whether they are an introvert or extrovert.
