Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Where Does Our Garbage Go? - Section 3: Activity

 

One thing I try to do is to ask as many open ended questions as possible to my students so that they do the thinking - not just me! However, sometimes I wonder whether my questions are really provoking more thought about the concept, taking students towards higher order thinking processes. Other times, I wonder if I am going too in depth about things that do not matter that much. In this video, I am talking to two students about their pictures of the classroom garbage and we start talking about pencils - I see on their faces recognition of the huge problem of broken pencils! I would never have thought to bring that up during this lesson, but apparently they do a lot of thinking about it!

  Discourse and Questioning: Am I asking the right questions??
