Those who have responsibility to plan lessons or support teachers in lesson planning in Mathematics and Science, you must take a deep look at http://www.goorulearning.org/
Gooru Learning is free and something I heard a great deal about at the Idaho Superintendents meeting earlier this week. To look deeply, ou must register (for free).
Amazing intellectual property and it is shareware–so free for your use and the taking. Are they on to something at Gooru Learning? If you have the chance, please let me know what you think!

While this skill is well-documented in the professional literature, it is under-leveraged and not well-coached by leaders. Watch this video of 5th grade teacher Renata Green and how she uses checking for academic understanding with probing questions and concept reviews.
