## Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Classification of Triangles - Section 2: Student Exploration

Discourse and questioning is a key component to every math lesson. Here's an example of a conference where questioning leads the student to a deeper conceptual understanding of angle classification: Identifying Triangle 3. Many times during this conference, I could have told him the answer, but instead I had to "bite my tongue" and provide the necessary wait time!
