Session 162: Pressing Pause: An Online Professional Development Model that Helps Teachers Take Time to Examine Student Thinking

  • Monday, April 15, 2013
  • 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM
  • Max Ray and Valerie Klein
  • Listening to student thinking during classroom teaching is challenging. Teachers struggle to generate questions that serve the dual purpose of learning more about the student’s ideas while moving that student’s thinking forward. This session describes online professional development that allowed us to craft and reflect on teacher-student problem-solving interactions asynchronously.
