Why & When To Ask The Question “Why?”


I’ve written previously about Marvin Marshall, whose positive system of classroom management I admire a lot.

He just wrote a useful post in his blog called “About The Question ‘Why?'” He shares how pointless it is to ask that question of a student about his/her behavior, and how critical it is for us to consider that same question when we reflect on, and explain about, the content we are teaching.
