Top 10 Questioning Strategies

“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is to not stop questioning.” – Albert Einstein

Questioning is the very cornerstone of philosophy and education, ever since Socrates ( in our Western tradition) decided to annoy pretty much everyone by critiquing and harrying people with questions – it has been central to our development of thinking and our capacity to learn. Indeed, it is so integral to all that we do that it is often overlooked when developing pedagogy – but it as crucial to teaching as air is to breathing. We must ask: do we need to give questioning the thought and planning time something so essential to learning obviously deserves? Do we need to consciously teach students to ask good questions and not just answer them? How do we create a ‘culture of inquiry’ in our classroom that open minds and provokes truly independent thought?

Take a look at this blog to see some points to reflect on as you pose your next questions…

About huntingenglish

A Subject Leader of English in a large, successful state school in York. Looking to share ideas and pedagogy. I am interested in the pleasure and power of reading and writing; the importance of being able to read the media; and the need to embrace technology to enhance learning. I believe teachers should be passionate in all that they do – even in the face of all the flak and obstacles put in our way.
