Hi -- The teacher's responsibility is to guide students and to provide real-life opportunities to solve problems. Also to engage students in problems where there is a possibility of either several different answers or several different approaches to those answers. Teacher questioning is key: Why? Prove your answer. Explain your thinking. Tell the class more about that. Can you give another example? Who else can provide an example? Allowing students to develop different strategies and share those strategies with others is also very valuable. -Susan, for the Teacher2Teacher service
