Teacher Talk and Deep Level Questioning

Questioning sessions make up a significant portion of instructional time.  When questions are used effectively they can promote discussion, topic exploration and comprehension. 

If you choose to participate in this project then you will work collaboratively with other teachers to improve your teacher talk and your use of deep level questioning in your classrooms and to assess the effectiveness of your interventions.

To help you start we have provided you with the presentation from the Launch and a range of starter references.
