26 Questions to Ask Students in The First Week of School

26 Questions to Ask Students in The First Week of School
August 12, 2014 Today as I was browsing through my Twitter feeds I stumbled upon this list of questions every student should be able to answer. The list is created by Terry Heick and spans a wide variety of topics relevant to students learning. I view this list as a great material to use with your student in the first week of this school year. Get students to work together and answer the questions featured in this selection. Of course, there are some questions students won't have answers to, it's ok they are not expected to answer all of them anyway. The importance of integrating questioning in your teaching pedagogy is two fold: first it provides students with an outlet to vociferate their voice and actively participate in the formulation of their learning needs. Here is a round-up of the 26 questions students should be able to answer. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26.

Photo BEFORE the semester began earlier this fall, I went to check out the classroom where I would be teaching an introductory American history course. Like most classrooms at my university, this one featured lots of helpful gadgets: a computer console linked to an audiovisual system, a projector screen that deploys at the touch of a button and USB ports galore.
