10 Mind Mapping Strategies For Teachers - TeachThought | Teacher Librarian Resources | Scoop.it

"The adoption of Mind Maps in teaching has grown recently due to the benefits of using Mind Maps to learn and the availability of free online mind mapping software.

5 Powerful Questions Teachers Can Ask Students

5 Powerful Questions Teachers Can Ask Students | Teacher Librarian Resources | Scoop.it

"My first year teaching a literacy coach came to observe my classroom. After the students left, she commented on how I asked the whole class a question, would wait just a few seconds, and then answer it myself. "It's cute," she added. Um, I don't think she thought it was so cute. I think she was treading lightly on the ever-so shaky ego of a brand-new teacher while still giving me some very necessary feedback.

 

So that day, I learned about wait/think time. And also, over the years, I learned to ask better and better questions."
