Discussion: Effective Questioning
Questioning is a critical aspect of formative assessment. More specifically, when used effectively, questioning is a way a teacher can monitor student understanding.
If you were advising a first year teacher about how to manage and structure questioning in a typical 30 student classroom, what is one of the best practices for questioning that is mentioned in your textbook? What do you think the biggest challenges are for teachers to use effective questioning techniques?
In each discussion you are expected to provide one original post within the first week that the discussion is open, and then respond to your classmates posts. 4-5 thoughtful and timely posts are in the A range.
