Questioning class training

Like the lesson on assessments I never realised questioning could be so extensive and complicated.

I know that when questioning students I have been striving for open questions but that I need to work on probing as when left with the ‘wall of silence’ I do sometimes feel at a loss on what to do but that with these handy starters I should be able to get the conversation moving but redirecting the question, rephrasing it perhaps rather than just answering it myself to get the class moving.

The PPPB method does look like it will need a lot of practice, especially to get used to but seeing it in action it does look like an very effective questioning tool to get students to pay attention and engage – a issue I have had with some students.
