Led by Joan Fei and Chris Resch
Description: On average, teachers ask 400 questions per day; or roughly 70,000 questions per year. What are all these questions for? In what ways do these questions cultivate curiosity, foster dialogue, and build your students’ science identities? There is no doubt that questions are at the heart of our profession. But how can we most effectively use questions to meet these goals? Socratic dialogue is a way of both intentionally and spontaneously curating a student’s path to understanding – by reflecting and expanding on students’ own questions.
In this workshop we will explore the several types of Socratic questions and how to build on these in a hybrid teaching context. We will talk through sample student-teacher questioning transcripts, take time to work with participant launch phenomena, and target and tackle specific challenges to questioning. Join us for a workshop that will help you refine your Socratic questioning skills to inspire and co-generate thinking with your students!
March 13, 9am-12:00pm EDT via Zoom
