Instructor incorporates a provocative prompt into his or her lesson.
The educator leads students to think more deeply about a topic by evoking their reactions to one or more provocative prompts. This can occur individually, in small groups, or in whole-class instruction.
Asking and attempting to address important questions is a cornerstone of many effective lessons. The goal of a provocative prompt isn’t merely to elicit conversation among students; a good prompt also helps students reexamine their own beliefs and attitudes.
- Optional: Instructor may allow students to remain anonymous, depending on the prompt.
- Optional (Gallery Walk): Rather than respond aloud, prompts and responses may be posted around the room; students respond to each response using sticky notes.
