A fresh perspective on the art of questioning

Questions are the driving force of learning in classrooms. Hacking Questions digs into framing, delivering, and maximizing questions in the classroom to keep students engaged in learning.

  • Hear the music: listen for correct answers
  • Scaffold to trigger student thinking without doing it for them
  • Kick the IDK bucket to avoid "I don't know" as the final answer
  • Punctuate your learning time to end with reflection questions
  • Spin the throttle to fuel students to ask the questions
  • Fill your back pocket with engagement questions
  • Make yourself invisible by establishing student-centered protocols
  • Be a Pinball Wizard and turn students into facilitators
