8 Strategies To Help Students Ask Great Questions

8 Strategies To Help Students Ask Great Questions | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

"Questions can be extraordinary learning tools.

A good question can open minds, shift paradigms, and force the uncomfortable but transformational cognitive dissonance that can help create thinkers. In education, we tend to value a student’s ability to answer our questions. But what might be more important is their ability to ask their own great questions–and more critically, their willingness to do so."

How do you teach your learners to ask good questions? This post shares many resources to help you learn new skills that will assist you in teaching others.

The post begins with a visual, the Teach Thought Learning Taxonomy, which is a template for critical thinking that looks at cognition across six categories. This is described in depth.

Additional tools shared include:

* Socratic Discussion which includes a video from Tch (the Teaching Channel)

* Paideia Seminar - "an integrated literacy event built around formal whole class dialogue. The purpose for doing Paideia Seminar is to support students’ ability to think conceptually and communicate collaboratively." There is also a video.

* The Question Game (which was shared previously on this Scoop.it)

* Bloom's Taxonomy

* Question Formation Technique - See the visual at the top, or check out their website at The Right Question Institute. If this is of interest to you they are presenting a workshop in Boston in July. Information on this is available at their website.

* Universal Question Stems and Basic Question Stem Examples

This is actually part 2 of a two part post. The first post is A Guide to Questioning in the Classroom.

Great starting point.

SOME TIMES KNOWING THE RIGHT QUESTION TO ASK WILL GET THE RIGHT ANSWER FOR THE PROBLEM YOU ARE TRYING TO SOLVE!!  IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT TO ASK YOU MAY NOT GET THE RIGHT ANSWER FOR YEARS BUT THE ANSWER TO THE QUESTION THAT WAS ASKED!?!

Check out three versions of Bloom's Taxonomy in this visualization. It includes the original Bloom's, the revised Bloom's, and adds on the Digital Bloom's, which provides a range of suggestions as to how students may demonstrate each level. This is another visual that you may want to share with other teachers in your school.

I love the clarity of the digital verbs! I think the specific content of the "doing" might allow for a bit of repositioning in the  chart, but it's certainly a great starting point in analyzing the tasks and output of a lesson.

It is interesting to see all of Bloom's side by side.

A nice set of questions that teachers can ask to reach across a wide range of Bloom's Taxonomy.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 28, 2014 8:09 PM

I found the critical thinking we undertook with students was bringing them back to the "right answer" per the curriculum. Is this real critical thinking?

Using Bloom's Taxonomy In The 21st Century: 4 Strategies For Teaching

Using Bloom's Taxonomy In The 21st Century: 4 Strategies For Teaching | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

"Bloom’s Taxonomy can be a powerful tool to transform teaching and learning.

By design, it focuses attention away from content and instruction, and instead emphasizes the “cognitive events” in the mind of a child. And this is no small change"

As I become a better facilitator it is important to find engaging, effective and efficient methods and strategies within the classrooms of our children; as well as for all adults attending brick & mortor or  online colleges. Bloom's Taxonomy is an essential tool!
