Getting pupils to do the questioning

About. The resource comprises one 3 page DfES document (drawn from a larger document - see related resources). It first describes some methods to encourage pupils to ask effective questions and then offers a grid to record how effective the techniques have been with a particular class (you may wish to adapt this/do this less formally).

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)
