Transcript of Text Based Questions

Practical Questioning Techniques Simplifying Common Core Common Thread in Common Core? One of the most important themes of the Common Core standards is asking meaningful questions.

Great questioning is also the clearest link between Common Core and Marzano.

What is a great question? What is Country Hills doing
to support critical thinking? Daily 5 / CAFE
Project-based learning
Guided/Shared reading
Meta-cognitive strategies
Integrating Content Areas ??????????????????????? Ask questions that require the use of skills rather than recall

Build on and access prior knowledge

Use assessments that stem from great questions

A text-based response finds evidence and not just answers

Facilitate student discussion

Remember that everything is "text" and... One that leads to other questions

One that demonstrates thinking

One that connects different ideas

One that tells us what our students (plural) understand Activity Pick 3
(Which strategies work for you in your class?)

Ask 2
(Create 2 text dependent questions based on a text or 1 question based on 2 texts)

Share 1
(Each group share one questioning strategy that is not on the list or a modification for your grade level) How Do We Ask Questions? Predictions

Meta-cognitive (explain your thinking process)

Model thinking out-loud

Don't give it away and persevere

Use negative examples (Why didn't...? as well as Why did...?)

Use strategies where more people can answer instead of just one (voting, partners, signals, movement, etc.) Student Discussion Use questions that spark dialogue

Use a variety of settings and groupings

Use student created questions

Correct misunderstandings without giving up the answer

Everyone is respected but not everyone is right
