Supporting students as they work

I'm interested in how teachers improve their skills at supporting
students when the students are working independently and in small
groups. Missy mentions sitting with a group as a member of the group
to get them going. How do you decide how to adapt a task if necessary
to get a student started? How do you engage students in recognizing
that they have information they can work from and figuring out how to
build on what they know? In what ways have you found the
Investigations units helpful for this?
