In regards to questioning, our class has been participating in a new activity called “Question Master.” Each student creates a question according to the steps of creating an effective question. Once these questions have been created, we choose a student to lead the question session each day. They ask their question, decide how many answers they will choose and they also explain if students can use a device or they use their own knowledge.

After the answers have been heard, the question master selects one winner. These questions invoke wonder from the students as well as builds on their knowledge about asking and answering questions.

We have found this to be a great intro to start all classes as well as a good way for students to work on their leadership in front of the class. It has been a great small 5-10 minute activity each day. I strongly suggest it for all teachers to try it out, especially teachers experimenting with inquiry.
