Shifting How we Use Questions: Understanding Question Words
This video, produced by Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board, highlights two teachers co-teaching a grade nine class of students with the goal for students to develop a deeper understanding of question words and how they are related to the processing involved in responding to a question. Classroom teachers and professional learning facilitators can use this video to enhance their understanding of the vocabulary used in questioning and to be able to more precisely use questions with students.
