Course reviews will be shown here


Welcome to Using Questioning and Discussion Techniques! Albert Einstein said, "The important thing is not to stop questioning Curiosity has its own reason for existing." Questions are an important element in the classroom. Teachers ask questions. Students ask questions. Questions are a part of classroom communication; they can expand thinking and knowledge.Questioning can be taught and learned. It is sometimes difficult for teachers to move away from direct knowledge questions and move on to synthesis and evaluation. However, it is worth the practice and time to develop questioning skills. It will stretch students and keep them interested. Questions such as ““What if ?”” ““What do you think ? ““How could we change ?”” will heighten student engagement. Teaching students to ask questions and actively participate in discussions causes excitement and increases the level of participation leading to recognize how much power they have over their learning.

  • Develop high level questions to engage students in the learning process and
