What is your advice about? Questioning.

1: Plan 2 or 3 key questions in advance of the lesson as part of your planning.

2: Use questions as part of your differentiation. Think about questions for support / questions for challenge.

3: Allow students time to think/answer. Don’t let them get away with ‘dunno!’

4: Avoid asking generalised questions into the ether eg ‘Did you all get that?’

5: Make students explain, justify or exemplify the answer they have given.
