"Extremely practical in its examples and readability. The authors' style is teacher-friendly. I particularly like the questions for reflection at the end of each chapter and the quotes from teachers in the field."
—Susan Hudson, School Improvement Services
Nashville, TN "Reading this book gave me an 'a-ha' moment on almost every other page. I have been using inquiry in my classroom for many years, and I even teach a class to other teachers about using questioning, but this book gave me more practical, research-based techniques to enhance the instruction I am giving. I have not seen a book that addresses using questioning so thoroughly, and gives such simple ideas for implementing the ideas."
—Patricia Herr, Elementary School Teacher, Virginia
Author, Inquiry-Based Learning Using Everyday Objects Use effective questions to advance student thinking, learning, and achievement!
Teachers question their students to advance thinking and learning. But what if they're asking the wrong questions? In Quality Questioning
, authors Jackie Walsh and Beth Sattes provide an in-depth look at how quality questions can transform classrooms. Developers of the QUILT framework, Walsh and Sattes show that teachers already know how to ask effective questions, but sometimes find it difficult to change their questioning behaviors. Based on two decades of research on teacher effectiveness, they offer strategies that engage all students in the teacher's questions and prompt students to generate their own questions. In turn, these superior questions will enrich students, their school's learning community, and any instructor's own professional development. Quality Questioning
