Next message: dbible: "[Teacher-Talkmissinglink] Input on the questions asked in this e-mail."
I teach in a field-based teacher preparation program. We specifically
target questioning techniques and hands-on, inquiry based teaching/learning
with our intern/resident pre-service teachers. My personal experience in
both K-12 and in higher education indicate that it takes most students
several months to grasp the idea of "thinking" and problem-solving
answering as opposed to objective type answering. Five sample questions
would not be enough experience. Glenda
