Developing questioning skills to support learning in mathematics and science

Participants will:
• Gain an insight of the research about effective questioning
• Be provided with practical activities to support effective questioning that can be used in the classroom
• Develop listening skills as well as questioning skills
Mathematics teachers ask questions of their students all the time. Often, they expect short answers and give very little time for students to answer. This session will be based on extensive work with teachers and students trying to develop strategies for more effective questioning. Good questions will probe student understanding and enable teachers to assess their progress. This session is based on work with mathematics teachers, but we hope will also be of interest to teachers of science.
