Reflecting on my own classroom.How can I best design instruction that promotes thinking?
    Interest related - "hot topic", clear directions, clear structure, safe (help if needed is avilable).  

    Option #2: What thinking look like in my classroom?
    Most students do not feel comfortable to do independent thinking.  It seems that there is always fear of being wrong and giving a wrong answer.  It takes time for our students to feel comfortable to produce independent opinion and it takes even more time to produce it publicly.

    Option #3: What questions can lead/help with thinking?
    All "W" questions have been very helpful.  We use them as "tour guides" to help them to promote independent thinking.
