We are focussing on the learning behaviour of questioning this term. Good learners ask good questions. They ask their teachers questions, classmates questions, and most importantly, they ask themselves questions. Good questions show that you are thinking and wanting to know more. They also show that you want to use what you know in new situations.
How does questioning help when you are doing any of the following things:
Reading, writing, doing maths, spelling, inquiring about a new topic, learning about religion, playing sport, creating art, making music, cooking, gardening, dancing, singing, inventing, praying?
What kinds of questions do you think will help when you are stuck in The Pit?
Why do you think it is important to ask yourself questions?
Who do you think asks better questions – students or teachers? Why?
When has questioning helped you learn?
We would particularly like to hear from parents/family members!
