Books Info:

Helping Your Pupils to Ask Questions free pdf Who? What? When? Where? Why? How? Asking questions has always been fundamental to making sense of the world. Unless we are able to critically question what we see, hear and read, we can't solve problems, create solutions, make informed decisions or enact change. And in our information-laden age, it is more important than ever to be able to decide what's relevant, legitimate and valuable. Helping your pupils to ask questions describes in-detail how questions can generate various levels of cognition, from remembering, understanding and applying to analysing, creating and evaluating. Focusing on the many different kinds of questions and ways that teachers themselves can model good questioning, this book shows teachers how they can help their pupils develop questioning skills through encouragement and a wide variety of targeted approaches. The book also suggests ways to set up a question-friendly classroom, provides teaching strategies and pupil activities and gives notes on assessment and record-keeping. It is complemented by several pages of proformas, which can be copied or amended for use in the classroom.
