Student Questioning | Student Generated Questions

Student Questioning | Student Generated Questions 

Student Questioning is not intuitive, students must model and be trained to generate questions and use higher order thinking strategies. Students that master the art of questioning are more resilient, and will find greater success. Teachers need to train students in best practice not only to answer questions but to generate high quality questions with the desire to understand more deeply.

Teaching Students to Ask Questions Instead of Answering Them

Student's questions or a lack of students questioning is critical to students learning success or failure? The unrefined "student questioning" that some teachers see daily! 1. The student questions never asked. 2. The student questions begrudgingly asked to get “Done”.3. The ultimate questions all teachers pray for, students questioning for deeper understanding! How do you grow and develop the questioning that creates a deeper understanding? The types of questions students ask, and the reasons students ask them is sometimes more important than the curriculum. Students that asked questions because of the intrinsic desire to find a deeper meaning will always find success. Creating students that are “With It and Wise” is a daily priority. Many students can’t or won’t find a reason to seek a deeper understanding with today’s curriculum and modern school structures without modeling and questioning stratagies. What is the best path to grow wise students that ask question?

 “By three methods we may learn wisdom: first, by reflection, which is noblest; second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third, by experience, which is the most bitter.” Confucius 

The path or way of finding wisdom is the same path for students to learn the value of questions and the ultimate reason for asking them.
Dedicated to my wise and newest “With It” student.  Angel C.
