Week 3

This week, my target was questioning. It went with a Social Studies on Canadian Government. Although I had discussed the lesson and its content with my co-op teacher, I wasn’t sure exactly how much they had covered, so I wanted to use questioning to get a sense of what they knew and what they need me to go over more thoroughly. I also wanted to use questioning to stimulate conversation, which I take to be a very important way of co-constructing classroom knowledge by having the students build off of each other. I did find getting responses to be a bit difficult, but it gave me a good idea of what I can do to improve and encourage conversation.
