Teacher Perspectives: Questioning

Matt Johnson: I try to use questioning on one level as a way of just checking in and seeing what kids are thinking about and finding out. It's like a mini-review activity, with one, two, or three kids. You start small and build your way up. It may be a way to hone their minds into what I think they should be thinking about. It's a good way to check on prior knowledge [or] to see if they're really focused on what we're doing right now. You can even use it as a way to guide the kids, as you throw out some new hypothetical questions to get them thinking about what they're working on right now.
