Now That’s a Good Question | Featuring Erik M. Francis
In this episode of the TeacherCast Podcast, we speak with ASCD Author Erik M. Francis about his book “Now That’s a Good Question! How to Promote Cognitive Rigor Through Classroom Questioning.
During our conversation, we discuss several ways that teachers can ask thought-provoking questions to their students both verbally and on assessments that allow them to provide a fully thought out answer rather than just a simple yes or no.
