Dylan William - Content then Process

Very interesting talk about the pose, pause, pounce technique.  Very interesting to me as this was encouraged by my previous Principal, Grant Ramsay, at Papatoetoe Central School 8 years ago when I first started teaching.  I certainly try and use the 3 second rule to give children a chance to process and think interactve questioning encourages thinking.  I have operated a no hands up policy in my Year 0/1 classes for the last 3 years.

Hi V
Glad to see you are still in the land of the living up there! Haven't watched this clip yet but I'm about to do so as it's sounds intruiging. I still haven't tried that no hands up approach myself but I can see the benefits of doing so.
