Philosophy for schools | Questioning

Philosophy for schools | Questioning | Professional Development for RMLP Tutors | Scoop.it

Questions are at the heart of learning, so good questioning has a great deal to do with good teaching. Following a precedent set by the ancient Greek philosopher, Socrates, over 2000 years ago, successful questioning is best achieved by the use of dialectic, which is to say a two-way, collaborative dialogue between the teacher and the students.
