Why Questioning?

Questioning is the key to higher order thinking and increasing student engagement. Teachers need a better understanding of how to plan and ask a good, scaffolded sequence of questions and how to engage all students in the conversation.

 

“I cannot do your thinking-work for you and make you an independent learner.”

— Dr. Lee Hannel, FOUNDER (1941-2011)
