Acquiring skills in questioning students is an important step towards becoming an effective teacher. A good questioning technique can allow teachers to gather information about the level of students' knowledge, actively involve all students in learning, develop the communication skills and confidence of students, and encourage students to become self-directed learners.

The Question Formulation Technique
The Question Formulation Technique (QFT) is a process that helps all students learn how to produce their own questions, improve their questions, and strategize on how to use the questions. The QTF method was developed by The Right Question Institute (http://rightquestion.org/education/).

Bloom's Taxonomy

A revised model was developed in the 1990’s to better fit educational practices of the 21st century. Learn how you can employ the revised Bloom’s taxonomy to help plan effective instruction and challenge students to move from the most basic skills (remembering) to more complex learning which leads to higher order thinking (creating). Bring a list of instructional goals and objectives to the workshop.
