Responding when Students Don't Get It
Fisher, Douglas; Frey, Nancy; Lapp, Diane
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v54 n1 p57-60 Sep 2010
When students make mistakes, have misconceptions, or are simply wrong, how their teachers respond either builds new skills and understanding or reinforces errors. An intentional approach to responding when students don't get it includes questions to check for understanding, prompts for cognitive and metacognitive work, cues to divert attention, and direct explanations.
