Deconstruct the experience. What were the teacher moves? How is it different than the same kind of problem in a textbook?
How does this quote apply?
“Teachers are so eager to get to the answer that we do not devote sufficient time to developing the question.”
— Daniel Willingham
Developing the Question
Ask for questions.
Ask for questions about the question.
Ask for an estimate.
Ask for a wrong answer.
Ask for a comparison.
Start a fight.
Ask what information is necessary.
Why do we do this?
Can I tell students why we do this?
Can I put students in a position to feel why we do this?
