Posing questions is central to teaching; however, more work is needed to understand how to support preservice teachers (PSTs) in developing this skill. This study describes the instructional principles used in a design experiment that aimed to develop elementary PSTs' ability to ask effective questions in response to students' mathematical thinking. Preliminary analysis revealed an overall decrease in PSTs' preference for teacher-directed and funneling questions and an increase preference for both general and specific elicit questions.
