Highly effective, transformed my practice
by JSchmaltz on Dec 12, 2014
Strategies are practical and easy to use Research is up-to-date and informative Ideas and theories are clearly explained
I implemented the questioning sequence across all content areas in my third grade classroom and am blown away at the thinking they are doing. I am now teaching them to be meta cognitive about their thinking and training them to use the questioning sequence themselves... Truly transformative to my practice! I am an instructional coach and have shown the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade teachers how to employ this strategy in their own classrooms. They are so excited to incorporate intentional questioning through the sequence in their own practices.
