      Here are my first two steps in striding towards teaching thinking: 1) How much are the students talking? If they don't have enough time to construct their own learning, they won't learn how to think. 2) Look at the questions we're asking. Do they cut to answers or do they open discussion. Pretty soon, the students will be the ones with the questions!
