The thing I love about these questions is that it is not right or wrong, so long as the reasoning is solid. I did the questions from the first module with my 8th graders and they when they would verbalize they would often use the correct answer is or so the correct answer is. When I told them that there wasn’t a right or wrong, as long as they had a good reason: the look on their faces was priceless. Their willingness to share after that took off, too. At the end, most of them said they really enjoyed questions like that. Getting them to think critically and defend their work/thinking is sooo important.
