“I don’t get it …”

Posted in Math, and Questioning

I cannot even count how many times my students say “I don’t get.” I used to thank them for telling me they are struggling and just walk away. Then I realized they simply did not know how to ask a question. Even when I would ask them to rephrase their statement, they often would look at me blankly. Then I made the question starter cards. What a game changer. Last week, a student started to say “I don’t get it” but stopped himself, looked toward the SmartBoard and said, “What do I do next?” Made my day.
