Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Create Your Own Utopia (Day 2 of 2) - Section 3: Utopian Review: Peer Gallery Walk/Review


I used to believe that it was my job as the teacher to make sure I always had the right questions to ask students to push them to deeper thinking. While I still think this is part of my job, I think that it is just as important to let the kids ask each other questions and to drive the discourse with their curiosity and ideas. 

This worked well today. I let the students take their basic persuasive ideas/techniques and then sat back and listened to them
