These questions could occur in a whole class discussion, in individual interviewing or in conferencing with small groups as they work on problem-solving" (p. 1). Much of the discussion around asking questions is based on making thinking visible. Clark (2017) suggests several ways to make that happen, firstly recommending the Connect-Extend-Challenge routine.
