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.
