Using a Question Building Chart to Provoke Student Thought

Using a Question Building Chart to Provoke Student Thought | AdLit | Scoop.it
One of the most effective ways to provoke student thought is through the building of “rich” questions. By asking meaningful questions - and interacting with textual information – students can come to an understanding that builds upon on their own personal experiences and opinions. Through the use of a template, questions can be created in any way that you want and provide you with a specific platform to begin your questioning focus.

The questions can be based on exam questions, or directly from past exam questions.  The students can be asked about their own experiences and say whether the textual information has any application to the society in which they live, e.g. How does the information help us?

Always Write: Corbett's "Teaching Critical Thinking with the Writing Traits" Teacher Workshop | AdLit | Scoop.it

Common Core State Standards-friendly Workshops: Building Critical Thinkers with Trait Language.

 

I spend the first twelve weeks of my school year teaching students to apply the language of the six writing traits to everything we read and everything we write. I do this diligently, as though the success of the entire school year depends upon it. Why? This establishes a vocabulary for writing, and I am a true believer that you can't teach writing well if you don't have a vocabulary to discuss it with your students. Giving my students--early on--better ownership of trait-inspired language becomes the single best investment of time that I make while building my community of readers and writers.

e-Learning as Inquiry - e-Learning for literacy

e-Learning as Inquiry - e-Learning for literacy | AdLit | Scoop.it

The role of e-learning in literacy teaching and learning


A growing body of research indicates that e-learning has considerable potential to enhance literacy teaching and learning. At the same time, New Zealand teachers have access to an evidence-based body of knowledge about how to improve literacy outcomes for their students.

 

This raises important questions:

 

What is the intersection between these two bodies of knowledge?
What role could – or should – e-learning play in students’ literacy learning?
How might teachers use e-learning to personalise the learning opportunities they provide for their students?
