PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Recent studies have come out regarding the decline in the amount of questions asked among children as they grow older. Personally that is extremely concerning. How is our society supposed to grow, develop, change for the better if we are all content with status quo? I use this lesson to teach my students how to develop questions and a means to organize classroom discussions. The class discussion is adapted from the Harkness Method. By personally giving up control in my class (of course I am still in charge, but for this activity I take a step out of the spotlight and let the students lead), I have found deeper student discussion than any other method I have tried. More learning occurs with less direction.

Included in This Packet:
o Introductory PowerPoint on how to ask questions
o Blooms Taxonomy Question Stem handout
o Discussion planning worksheet and after discussion questions
o How to chart a classroom discussion handout
o Sample chart of a classroom discussion
