Provocative Questions for the Faculty

Provocative Questions for the Faculty | Edtopic Favs | Scoop.it

From #edchat... comes a Peter Pappas post worthy of consideration.  If you could pose the questions that were part of those opening school faculty meetings, what would they be.  Peter has started the list off with ideas that are sure to fire-up conversation.    Not only should we have good questions, but our focus should be on how a teacher leader advances this kind of conversation....how do we convince our schools that teacher-generated questions have an equal place in these meetings?
