Teachers guide student learning by selecting, designing and planning learning tasks, asking probing questions, observing students at work to identify misconceptions and planning follow up experiences. Well constructed tasks allow students’ entry to the problem from different points, encourages divergent thinking and engages students in thinking like an expert in the field (mathematician, scientist, and historian).
