  • 1. Effective Questioning
    • What is effective questioning?
    • How might it improve my practice?
    By CThompson
  • 2. Teaching by Asking Instead of by Telling
    • Asking questions to drive a lesson is an old and established teaching method
    • It is more commonly known as the ‘Socratic Method’ - Teaching by Asking Instead of by Telling
    • This method uses questioning to drive the dynamics of a lesson
    By C Thompson
  • 3. Effective questioning is there to:
    • to stimulate thinking
    • assess student progress
    • check on teacher clarity
    • motivate students to pay attention
    • maintain classroom control
    • provide repetition
    • emphasize key points
    By C Thompson
  • 4. Questioning Skills- presenting questions
    • For this the teacher needs to:
    • Recognise what they want students to discover from the question asked
    • State the question to everyone and not someone in particular
    • After the question has been asked in general then and only then specifying someone
    By C Thompson
  • 5. Questioning Skills- probing questions
    • If a student doesn’t know the full answer ‘tease-out’- probe until you uncover what they do know – this is rewarding for everyone
    • It also allows for the question to be broken down by the students – this is effective analysis
    • Probing necessitates patience on the part of the teacher and student. But it facilitates thinking and analysis
    By C Thompson
  • 6. Questioning Skills- shifting interaction
    • Shifting interaction is where after the initial question has been asked the teacher allows the students to interact between each other
    • So if after probing a student knowledge runs dry, reward the student then encourage another student to answer the question
    • Such a process might facilitate students coming back to the teacher with a question!
    By C Thompson
  • 7. Conclusions
    • Questioning is a means of getting feedback to evaluate student progress
    • It increases student learning
    • It is a way to force students to think during class
    • It increases the opportunity for whole class interaction
    • By Teaching by Asking Instead of by Telling
    By C Thompson
