Higher Order Questioning - Staff Presentation/Training

Higher Order Questioning - Staff Presentation/Training

I was asked to put together a presentation for staff to explain the importance of higher level questioning and give some examples of approaches and activities to encourage it. The powerpoint does just that! This was followed up with further training sessions and now I lead a SWG for stretch and challenge. Please feel free to contact me if you would like further explanation of any activities or further examples. I have not been able to upload the Question Generator but can send this to you separately. Also included, a self assessment sheet and notes to go with the powerpoint. Additionally, the slides contained structured questions relevant to the subject, within the Academy I teach at, all subject areas produced a specific one. The idea being that students get more used to higher order questioning and encourages better peer questioning, teachers have a visual aid - often useful if being observed.

Practical Application:  From Design Brief to Proposed Sociological Methodology!

Practical Application: From Design Brief to Proposed Sociological Methodology!

I created this lesson for an observation. It was a 2 hour lesson but you could split it over 2 lessons or reduce it down to 1 1/2 hours. There is a practical starter - reminding of terms and the process of choosing a methodology from start to finish. The main activity comprises of 5 separate applied scenarios. Students are given one of these Briefs and then need to decided what questions they need to ask to proceed further to make decisions about this proposed study. They are then given further information - giving info about personal characteristics, funds, funding bodies etc. There is an activity to run along side this and lesson plan to explain how the lesson runs.
