We all use questions to find out what students know, but how often do you use questions to help students learn? Knowledge-based questions have an important role in education, but so do higher-order questions. These questions often challenge students, making them think beyond the remembering stage. They may focus on understanding material, applying what has been learned, or creating something new.
The questions that we ask will impact how our students learn. Help students tap into higher-level thinking with higher-order questions!
