Questioning skills

This video on questioning has been produced by Tom Sherrington, drawing upon the work of Barak Rosenshine.  The recording focuses on strategies for questioning and checking for understanding.  It is an invaluable resource and is worth watching again and again as you pick up new ideas each time you watch it.  

The image below summarises questioning techniques that are covered by Tom Sherrington in the video.


Dylan Wiliam has produced this training on hinge questions.  This is another great technique to have in your teaching tool kit.
