    This was great to listen to. I can relate to what you shared. When students shout out the answer I would ask how do you know or help me picture how you got there. And I will tell the student… I want to learn how you know. Sometimes making students think that we are very interest in how they think, which we are, we make them feel very important and appreciated.

      Thanks for stopping by. We couldn’t agree more regarding pushing students to share their thinking. They might not feel comfortable at first if they have been conditioned to just give answers, so really trying to help them understand that we care and that their strategy is important to us can help.
