NTI participants

Session 2: The Power of Teacher Response


90 minutes


This session will guide participants to more deeply understand the concept of “spontaneous interventions” or the things that teachers do and say “in the moment” that either extend students’ thinking or limit it. In this session, participants will build background knowledge about the impact of teachers’ questioning, probing, and responding habits and examine transcripts of teacher/student interactions to analyze the impact of those habits.
