About the eBook

Create environments where students ask questions, not just answer them!

When students become questioners, learning improves for all. Yet, even though research has repeatedly shown that student questioning increases ownership of learning and narrows opportunity gaps, studies show that students ask less than five percent of the questions in classrooms today.

How do you turn this teacher-centric dynamic around? In this book by bestselling author and education expert Jackie Walsh, the author shifts the focus to student-centric learning and how to develop student questioning strategies, including self-questions, academic questions, exploratory questions, and dialogic questions. Other highlights include:

• Vignettes of quality questioning in action in various grade-level and content-area classrooms
• Examples of how to use questioning to harness the power of formative assessment and create a culture of inquiry
• Student questioning models for distance learning

By instilling students with the desire and ability to become better questioners, teachers will see more actively engaged students, more collaboration, and an increase in overall student motivation for learning and achievement.
