Steve Snyder: A Practical Approach for Increasing Students’ In-Class Questions | Character and character tools | Scoop.it

Steve Snyder:

 

I usually offer a few parameters as well:

Avoid yes/no questions.Be specific in terms of ideas and passages (i.e., specify page numbers).Ask about the areas or ideas you struggled with and/or those that really aroused your curiosity.


The latter point is key. The best questions usually arise from a sincere questioner.
