Webinar Runtime: 40 Minutes
This webinar will provide senior leaders, headteachers and all teaching staff with an understanding of how effective questioning can be used in the classroom to enhance teaching and pupil attainment.
It is estimated that teachers ask about 300-400 questions per day, and as many as 120 questions per hour. Questioning is essential to determine learning needs and prompt pupils to think. However, traditional methods don’t necessarily achieve these two key objectives.
By adopting a strategic approach, teachers can make the most of questioning to support excellent learning and progress. With careful preparation, effective questioning can soon become second nature and via modelling, teachers can develop learner skills of enquiry and independence.
In this webinar, Stephen Burnage, a consultant, trainer and school leadership specialist with over 25 years’ teaching experience, explains how teachers can harness the power of questioning to engage all learners, and equips them will practical skills to facilitate assessment, encourage productive thinking and improve the attainment of the whole class.
