Short PD on Using Possibility Questions with Short Answer

Share This Post

Short Answer is excited to kick off a new series of free resources for teachers and administrators! Our new Short PD series will detail pedagogical strategies that will amplify Short Answer’s effectiveness in your classroom. These resources will live right alongside our other amazing free resources for educators on our Teacher Resources page.

In our first video, our co-founder Adam Sparks shares a questioning strategy he learned from educator Tara Martin at the 2023 MACE Edtech Conference in Manhattan, Kansas. Called “Possibility Questions”, this strategy is a great way to get kids thinking divergently in the classroom, whether that be with Short Answer or any other activity you use. Find out more in the video below, by following Tara on Twitter, and by checking out her free “Questioning Matt” resources on her website.
