Using Questions to Teach & Learn

This research based workshop promotes critical thinking skills by improving questioning strategies by students and teachers. It looks at surface and deep structure of questions that go across curriculum contents and comes under the umbrella of Danielson’s model of Common Core standards. It destroys the myth of Bloom’s Taxonomy as having a set order to questioning techniques and proves higher level thinking can occur at all question levels. This is a hands-on activity based …workshop that teachers can use immediately in the classroom.
