## Common Core in Action: Teaching Critical Thinking and Questioning

Since being asked to pilot my school's first iPad 1:1 classroom, I've been working through a paperless project-based learning unit with my eighth graders. It had been going on since the first day of

Great lesson here that demonstrates the shift in instruction--I did a similar project as a freshman in college!

## Questioning - Elementary Math

Dan's post on math questioning reminded me of the video below and how impressed I was by this teacher's questioning skills. She ran the whole class like this and made it work well. It really was so...

Connor Reilly's curator insight,

The video on this page was a perfect example to illustrate the higher order questioning strategies that we discussed in class. In the video, the teacher merely acts as a facilitator for questioning. When the students in this video are drawing rectangles instead of trapezoids, the teacher does not give the correct answer, but instead asks the students to explain the logic of their wrong answer. This causes the students to realize they need to reevaluate the question. I have begun using higher order thinking questions in my math lessons, but sometimes it is difficult for me to not lead students to the answer if they do not understand. This video shows me that students have the capability to reevaluate their thinking on their own. I really like the teacher's use of the phrase 'explain your logic'. That will be a phrase I use in my teaching next semester.

## Hint Cards, Questioning, and sustaining problem-solving

Giving students the tools to work independently is a challenge for many teachers. With hint cards, teachers are able to build support for their students while they work independently. Great for scaffolding.

3 minutes of open question discussion in a Math class

Via Connor Reilly
Connor Reilly's curator insight,

This lesson is a great example on how to ask students the "How Did You?" kind of questions in a math class. The most important thing to notice is that the teacher is constantly asking her students to repeat the thinking of the students who previously shared their ideas. Not only is this teacher asking students how THEY did their work, but also how their peers did their work as well. This is a great way to build math discussion in the classroom. My math classroom currently looks very similar to this. There is often math discussion and discussion of student ideas. Not only are the teachers asking "How Did You?" questions, but the students are encouraged to use their math language to question the ideas of their peers, as well as defend them.

## A.B.C.P.E

So it looks like I don't know my alphabet...A.B.C.P.E... In reality, I am quietly confident that I could recite the 26 letters of the alphabet (in the correct oder). So why A.B.C.P.E? Well, I thoug...
