Effective Questioning Strategies in the Classroom: A Step-by-Step Approach to Engaged Thinking and Learning, K-8
Fusco, Esther
Teachers College Press
Questions are the most important tool a teacher can use to build a community of thinkers. This practical guide provides teachers with a step-by-step process for implementing a set of questioning strategies known as the Questioning Cycle. This strategy supports teachers in planning and asking questions, assessing students' responses, and following up those responses with more questions to extend thinking. In this book, you will see students become more curious and actively involved with learning because they are allowed to use their skills to question, examine, and argue about different aspects of a topic. K-8 teachers across all disciplines can use this book to create a challenging learning climate and lively class discussions. This book features: (1) In-depth guidance for using and developing effective questions; (2) Reflections from teachers; (3) Scripts of teacher questions and student responses; (4) Suggested activities at the end of each chapter; and (5) Support material for teachers, including evaluation checklists and forms.
