This paper reports the start of an inquiry where, as a high-school mathematics teacher, one of my goals was to encourage students' active participation in classroom activities. In it I describe two classroom episodes, one where my actions were problematic. Through critically reflecting on the episodes, I defined the type of student participation that I thought was desirable and what I might do to foster it. As part of the inquiry I used a multiple method research approach, and I describe in the paper how it informed my teaching practice.
