Self-Evaluation Checklist for Questioning

Some of the favorite books I have ever read about math education are the Every Minute Counts books by David R. Johnson.  These books give great ideas about arranging your desks, checking homework, direct instruction, the classroom routine, notebooks, etc.    One of the topics that shows up in all 3 books is questioning.  In Motivation Counts, David suggests using a Self-Evaluation Checklist on questioning.

I thought this was a good way to hold myself accountable for different questioning techniques throughout the year.    To save time, I threw all these questions in a Google Form and tried to answer the question every week or so.   I didn’t start this until the end of the school year so I don’t have a lot of responses.  Fee free to checkout the Form and the Responses*.  

*On Sheet 2 of the response Google sheet, I keep track of the percent of time a mark ‘Yes’ for each question.
