A couple of Questioning MYTHS to discuss:

FALSE: The more questions a teacher asks, the fewer students ask. 

MYTH: If students don't respond immediately, ask another question. Avoid that uncomfortable silence. 
FALSE:  Wait time is important. Student confidence increases; the number of questions students ask increases.
