Teaching Tip: Questioning- Pose..Pause..Pounce..Bounce

Pose – the teacher poses a difficult question to the class.
Pause – the teacher then waits, giving students thinking time. 10 seconds is enough. be brave and wait longer if you can!
Pounce – the teacher then insists on no hands up and pounces on a student for as response.
Bounce – the teacher or student then bounces the ideas to another student in the class. There is no need for teacher evaluation. The Bounce student should respond to what the previous student has said.
Keep bouncing!
