The Prepared Practitioner: Ask Questions—and Listen!

The Science Teacher—Summer 2009

As you enjoy your summer break, are you thinking about professional development—or spending time with friends and loved ones? How about combining the activities! Conversing with friends and family offers a chance to practice questioning techniques that can be used in the classroom. Your friends will appreciate the interest you are taking in them, their responses will give you more to talk about, and you will become a better teacher—all at the same time. So talk, listen, and enjoy your summer!
