Full Course Content

This course will focus on developing effective questioning from teachers and, just as importantly, highlight how to use pupil responses to accurately assess misconceptions and build on prior learning.  It will explore how to increase the engagement of all pupils and demonstrate ways to improve poor language skills, as well as extending the learning of already articulate pupils. It will show how to apply a range of techniques and activities to encourage a much deeper level of understanding and generate an environment of collaborative learning.
