Quick Coaching Guide: Inspiring Curiosity and Wonder Through Questioning
Students benefit when teachers use effective questioning techniques. Asking students effective questions will initiate their natural inclination to seek learning experiences that will inspire them and instill a lifelong love of learning. Well-reasoned questions lead to well-reasoned student responses and give voice to how student’s think, and they allow teachers to lift, shift, and extend student thinking. This Quick Coaching Guide describes effective questioning techniques to create more purposeful questions. Diagnostic and open-ended questions are reviewed, as well as how to teach your students the skill of effective questioning using anchor charts, Interactive Modeling, and other strategies. A multifaceted tool for ongoing, embedded professional development, Quick Coaching Guides encapsulate a specific topic through the Responsive Classroom lens and offer educators unique tools for reflection, learning, and planning for change.
