Ask Me Two Questions

A great approach that I am going to try to start incorporating into our practices.

This is from Andre Sasser, a high school Math teacher in Louisiana:

Two years ago, I was saying “do you have any questions?” Last year I switched to “what questions do you have?” It made a difference. Today I tried “ask me two questions”. And they did! And those ?s led to more ?s. It amazes me that the littlest things have such a big impact!

Mac Matthews (Director of Thunder Academy) adds: “Words matters. I give my players one to two questions during our first water break that they are to figure out and answer during the 2nd water break.”
