Questioning for Higher Order Thinking (3-Hour)


Presenter: Dr. Joyce Juntune, Texas A&M University

Grade Level: Elementary & Secondary
Hours: 3

When questioning ceases, the learning stops. Questioning allows your students to build the habit of curiosity. In education, sometimes we think learning is all about the answers, but there is also an art to teaching students to be inquisitive. Great questioning is best taught by teachers who model great questions. This course shows you how.
