Robert Kaplinsky and Melissa Canham’s article Practicing Questioning Skills as a Tool to Assess Student Understanding about an activity called Questioning Scenarios was published in the March 2012 issue of the California Mathematics Council (CMC) ComMuniCator. The Questioning Scenarios activity’s purpose is to give educators an opportunity to practice their questioning skills by role playing a teacher-student interaction. This allows the teacher to focus on which types of questions are the most effective at getting students to explain themselves and think through their reasoning.
