Subject: Interviewing Questions

One question that would work for both elementary and intermediate
levels is to ask how the teacher would incorporate the use of math
journals into the curriculum.  Many of the new standardized tests ask
students to explain their reasoning rather than to simply come up with
the correct answer and many of the scoring rubrics look for key
mathematical words - so you also might ask how the teacher
incorporates math vocabulary into instruction - math is a language all
its own!  I always ask how the teacher goes about developing a math
concept - like decimals or place value.
