Dimension V: Extending Thinking During Discourse

This dimension focuses on the teacher’s role in structuring and extending classroom discussions by providing insightful responses to student ideas that help the students explore their ideas more deeply and thoughtfully, as well as the teacher’s role in providing feedback during class discussions. Research indicates that students who ask and respond to probing questions think more deeply about their learning and that teachers can use probing questions to frame follow-up questions that shape the further
exploration of concepts and understanding at deeper levels.

Students should be provided with opportunities to develop ideas and an understanding of the content. This dimension is specific to more informal feedback that often occurs in real time during a lesson.
