Better Questions, Deeper Learning participants will consider what it means to incorporate rigor into the classroom and how they may use questioning strategies to engage students in deeper thinking. Effective classroom instruction encourages students to build thinking skills beyond those of simple recall and one of the most effective ways teachers can do so is through their questioning strategies. Student responses to questions can provide important information to teachers on what students understand and can do and how they think about and use different concepts.

Viewers of this session are:

  • Able to define rigor and evaluate ways in which rigor may manifest in the classroom.
  • Able to use questioning strategies to engage students in deeper thinking.

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to K-12 teachers and school and district leaders.
