Purposes of Questioning
WAIT TIME 1: after asking a question before designating a student to answer
WAIT TIME 2: after a student responds, before the teacher reacts or comments
Wait Times
Studies show that about 25% of students do not participate in class at all, and 15% dominate class interactions.


What can we do to change that??

3 Cognitive Levels of Questioning

King Midas finds a satyr, keeps him for a week, and then returns him to the god Dionysis. Dionysis rewards Midas by granting him a wish. King Midas wants to be able to turn things into gold by simply touching them. He realizes the harm in this when he can't eat and when he loses his daughter, who is turned into a gold statue. He requests that his power be removed from him. When he returns home, he finds his daughter has returned to normal.

Give examples of others who have suffered because of greediness. Your examples can be real or fictional.

Recall, Use, or Create?

Who grants Midas the wish?

Quality Questions are...
Purposeful (What is the instructional purpose of the question?)
Have a clear content focus (What facts or skills are important? What do you want students to be able to know or do?
Engage Students at Varied & Appropriate Cognitive Levels (DOK or taxonomies)

"Alternate Response Formats"
1) Recitation:
choral response, thumbs up/thumbs down, hand signals, white boards
(good for drill & practice, checking for understanding)

2) Student Interaction:
numbered heads together, think-pair-share

3) Discussion:
peoplegraph, synectics, data on display, interview design, fishbowl discussion, and say-it-in-a word
Best way to assist thinking is to systematically provide ample time for students to think, without talking
3-5 seconds is ideal
