How can I get the best out of a question?
Asking questions has been a large focus for me in the development of Action Stations. The types of questions we ask and when we ask them is vital to help grow the thinking and learning for different students in different stages of their learning journey. This video is a great technique that would empower conversations, thinking and student ownership.
Children are working in small groups to develop a brainstorm of questions on a given topic
ask as many questions as you can.
don't take time to judge r answer questions as you go.
change statements into questions
write down every question as it stated
Introduce the focus question
Discuss next steps
Make a plan of action
Reflect on the question
How do these questions show you have learned something about the focus.
