Kids Ask the Best Questions.
Deal, Debby; Sterling, Donna
Educational Leadership, v54 n6 p61-63 Mar 1997
According to 1995 National Science Education Standards, "inquiry into authentic questions generated from student experiences is the central strategy for teaching science." Effective classroom questions promote relevance, encourage ownership, help students interpret their observations, and link new learning to what students already know. Two middle-level teachers describe their approach to floating/sinking questions. (MLH)
