I completely LOVE the idea of building anticipation in students and having them notice and wonder in order to spark curiosity. What’s incredibly hard to do as teachers is to be quiet instead of telling them what’s mathematically unique about the problem. It takes a lot of trust to wait for students and sometimes they just aren’t seeing what you need them to see. I want to work on improving my questioning strategies and wait time techniques in order for student voice to drive the learning instead of just being a time-filler until the teacher swoops in to save them and tell them what’s mathematically valuable. Lots to ponder here!
