The Art of a Good Question

The Art of a Good Question: Asking and Answering for Students and Teachers

In the inquiry-based learning climate of today, it is critical that teachers and students know how to ask questions that will deepen content area learning and increase their capacity to create and carry out investigations.  Strategies for getting your students to ask good questions and creating essential and higher-order thinking questions will be examined during this session.  We’ll also highlight Harris Learning Collection materials that awaken student curiosity.  Appropriate for all grade levels and content areas.

Join us on Saturdays this spring for professional development workshops focusing on promoting inquiry by using real artifacts and specimens in the classroom!
