About. The resource comprises one 3 page DfES document (drawn from a larger document - see related resources).

Pedagogical content. This resource describes some methods to encourage pupils themselves to engage in effective questioning(ta) - an active learning(ta) approach which may be useful in whole class(ta) or group work(ta) discussion(ta). (edit)
