  • Asking better questions

    Posted by Nicholas Pyzik on March 21, 2020 at 3:20 pm

    One thing that I would love feedback on and struggle with when working with teachers is how to get them to ask better questions to their students. In my role, I get the chance to model a lot for teachers which I love, but I know what questions I want to ask, however I struggle to help teachers figure out the necessary questions that they need to ask.

    Nicholas~ Questioning is such a critical skill in the math classroom. I always try to consider: Can at least 3 students respond to this my question? That usually ties into my goal of having students explain their thinking in multiple ways or justifying their answer. Curious to see what you learn…
