Using Questions to Improve Comprehension, Reasoning, and Problem Solving
Recording Now Available!
The artful and strategic use of questioning is a pedagogical skill that doesn’t receive enough attention in most teacher preparation programs. Questioning in the classroom should do far more than simply prompt students to supply a bit of factual information. Questions can help students think deeply about academic material and their own thoughts and feelings about what they are learning.
In this webinar, participants will explore the use of teacher and student questioning to:
- Analyze texts beyond surface levels of comprehension
- Probe concepts and challenge preconceptions, and
- Solve complex, real-world problems in a variety of academic disciplines
