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 edWebinar consider what it means to incorporate rigor into the classroom and how they may use questioning strategies to engage students in deeper thinking.

We use specific examples from The Achievery, a FREE digital learning platform created by AT&T designed to help connect students to a new world of digital learning through stories that spark curiosity and content that entertains and teaches. The platform features clips from some of the most popular, well-loved movies, TV shows, and cartoons from Warner Bros. and Cartoon Network, paired with lessons and learning activities that students can engage with wherever they are—at home, in the community, and in the classroom.

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