I think I need to explicitly program the questions I am going to use to make sure I'm choosing questions from all different levels.
An idea for lesson study could be to ask your partner to make a note of the questions you ask so you can see what types you do actually ask. You may be surprised at the variety.
I think I use most questioning types but due to the TPL I will be more aware and ensure that I use a full variety. I sometimes write questions in my planning but would prefer to think on the run as It's hard to predict which way the lesson will go.
I will be looking at the explicit programming of questions that stimulate mathematical thinking. I think that having question cards that allow self-directed scaffolding with upper primary will work well.
I am more aware of the types of questions I use in class and I think it will be useful for explit questions to be written down in programs to ensure we are focusing on them during lessons.
I have been reflecting upon the types of questioning I use and how I can best incorporate a wide range of questioning into my lessons. I think using questions as a starting point to explicitly plan and program will assist in helping more children access the open ended style of questions and problems.
I honestly havent had much time to think about this with everything else that is going on, however i found it interesting at the time and think the types of questioning we use are important and i discovered i need to include more questioning in the body of the lesson. i have to go get ready for mr baker's visit today now. busy busy!
It has been useful to be reminded of different types of questions. Including 'starter questions' to stimulate thinking has been effective this week. Writing the questions on post-its and sticking them on student's desks to remind me to ask them, has been helpful :)
Questions are important and will be aware.
