Questioning Techniques in Primary Science

Warwick, P. (Paul)

This resource offers the opportunity to think about the appropriate questions to ask at various stages of investigation and how to ensure high quality questioning at these points. This is obviously an important classroom skill, one which has a strong impact on children's progression, yet which can often be lacking in classrooms which tend to focus on fact-based recall questions. This resource offers an opportunity to think about such an activity and some prompts for applying questioning techniques. Although they are written for science, these suggestions could be used as prompts for application in other subjects.
