This Colombian teacher offers an example of how to use questioning to engage a range of students across the classroom in learning. The teacher makes use of the classroom space to move around and encourage students to engage with developing an example quadratic function as a class. The questioning is dynamic and energetic. The teacher questions not only a range of students, but also poses follow-up questions to push for reasoning too. The teacher is persistent in searching for not only solutions but also the rationale behind them. Watch out for how the teacher:
- Asks students to explain the rationale behind their answers
- Calls for other answers to facilitate a comparison
- Questions a range of students across the classroom
How do you use questioning in your own classroom?
