Questioning Webinar Stellar Questioning Webinar Stellar Presentation Transcript

  • Scientific Thinking & Discourse
    • Teachers show students how to ask and answer higher level questions; they also model higher order thinking by modeling their thinking out loud.
    • The questions themselves ask students to “speculate, predict, synthesize, and make judgments, rather than merely recalling facts”
  • Valuing Students…
    • Students’ knowledge and experience influence all four strands of science understanding.
    • Science learning and discourse connect classroom talk, informal personal experiences, everyday terms, and concrete experiences
    • Students learn science by actively engaging in the practices of science.
    • Do not equate the action of activities with the understanding of concepts.
    - Boch, 2000
  • On Building Science Literacy
    • Current curricular practices do not place sufficient emphasis on cognitive tools and communication abilities of students in order to maintain their science literacy
    • Any promotion of science literacy should empower people to be literate in the discourses of science
    - Yore and Treagust 2006
  • Conclusions and Next Steps
    • What next steps can you take in encouraging your students to engage in scientific discourse?
    • How can you use questioning as a strategy to help your students in science?
