Powerful Student Questioning in the ELAR Classroom-Session II

It'd be so easy If we could just tell students to "ask good questions" and they would respond in kind. But one of the mind shifts we might need to adopt (or adapt) is the realization that teaching students how to ask good, or "beautiful," questions (Warren Berger) takes practice -- lots and lots of practice. And not just from students, but from teachers who, by establishing frequent routines and procedures, can create classrooms of deep, complex thinking, generated through the habit of questioning. 


Part II:

Continue learning about, practicing, and crafting these routines and procedures together using the QFT strategy to stimulate thinking as we: 

  • Explore components of the QFT Strategy.

  • Produce questions.

  • Improve questions.

  • Create an Action Plan.

  • Reflect.

We recommend that you complete session I prior to session II.
