Flexible Interviewing in the Classroom

The Teacher's Guide to Flexible Interviewing in the ClassroomLearning What Children Know About MathBy Herbert P. Ginsburg, Susan F. Jacobs, & Luz Stella Lopez

Thoughts to remember:
  • Need to always (or at least frequently) ask students to explain answers - even (especially?) when they are correct.
  • Need to use more open-ended questions.
  • Need to focus less on the answer, and put more focus on the process.
  • Need to have students do more writing about their thinking.
  • Need to have students do more self-evaluation.
  • Need good ways to document what I learn from interviews/conferences.
