If a kid does not ask the question for what the information they are being taught is the answer, then the information will not stick and it will have no consequence in their life.

A good classroom environment is always placing kids in a situation in which each student is asking personal questions that beg to be asked and the answer needs to be found.

However, often when teachers get a question I think we usually overstep our bounds and too often see the moment after it asked as an opportunity to teach.

In a great classroom, teachers do not see a question from a student as an opportunity to teach, but an opportunity to ask another question that will prompt the student to discover their own solution…or even better, another question.
