Although I have not worked on my questioning skills as much as I would have liked, I have consistently been using pictures from 101qs.com and asking students to write the first question that comes to mind and then a more thoughtful question every Thursday.
It’s the fifth week of school and I’ve seen a huge improvement over the weeks in the type of questions that they are asking. I haven’t magically figured out how to make those transfer to the math that we’re doing. Yet. But I am seeing improvement.
So I want to say to anyone reading this that making small changes with consistency can yield big improvements. Don’t give up!!
