Asking the Right Questions

to Improve Students Performance

PRESENTER: Bill Reed

Effective teaching uses a variety of question types to assess and gather evidence of student thinking, including questions that gather information, probe understanding, make the mathematics visible, and ask students to reflect on and justify their reasoning. Teachers are wonderful at “gathering information” questions. Getting teachers to ask the right questions well beyond simply gathering information is the goal. Teachers asking the right purposeful questions will improve the overall performance of students in the class and on the standardized assessments, they will encounter during their secondary and post-secondary education. Examples, ideas, and resources for asking purposeful questions will be presented, demonstrated, and discussed.
