Questioning and Feedback: Top Ten Strategies
As part of our whole staff training at Huntington School we have been sharing ideas and collating ‘Top Ten Strategies’. This list is the fruits of our labour: 1. Differentiated questioning. Given the time we take doing it daily, effective questioning may well be the highest impact strategy we can employ. There is no ‘one size fits every class’ strategy. 2. Giving waiting time for answers to our questions is something we do instinctively. 3. Being prepared with a strategy for students saying ‘I don’t know’ is clearly essential. 4. We have focused on this as a school and will continue to do so. 5. After feedback we need to make sure that we have students actively responding to their feedback. 6. This is a simple analogy to make the layers of assessment clear. 7. Students need to understand the specific command words in their subject discipline and breakdown the different types of questions/topics etc. 8. Using exemplar models is a fundamental aspect of good teaching practice. 9. 10.
