The power of questions

Page history last edited by Shaun 10 years, 11 months ago

This is the transcript of #eltchat on 15.05.13 on the power of questions

 

username time status
Marisa_C 9:03 PM So, testing times (but really opportunity for T to catch up :-) - how many types of questions mentioned in video? #eltchat
Shaunwilden 9:03 PM Shall we discuss it then? #eltchat
theteacherjames 9:03 PM RT @Shaunwilden: Tonight's #eltchat  at 21BST is the power of questions - http://t.co/zZfmmM53GF
SueAnnan 9:04 PM sorry everyone. had to watch it to the end  #ELTChat
Shaunwilden 9:04 PM @Marisa_C lots ;-) #eltchat
theteacherjames 9:04 PM @Shaunwilden Good question. #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:05 PM #eltchat the interesting Qs she asked were Qs not really for an answer but Qs u ask so they "stare you in the face"
shaznosel 9:05 PM Hi all..here but have to admit I had sound probs with the video- so a little blind here! #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:05 PM @Shaunwilden hm - was hoping ther would be a simple three to four part categorization - and may be higher vs lower order Qs no? #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:06 PM she did have a list of diff types of Qs - yes/no, right/wrong, thought-provoking, CCQs, Qs for requests etc #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:06 PM @KatySDavies explain pls bcz unable to her audio of this one #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 9:06 PM @Marisa_C It was really done like that, there was sone identifying of Qs types and what their purpose was #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:07 PM so for example she asked 'why did this picture choose you' not 'why did you choose this picture'  #eltchat
Shaunwilden 9:07 PM my fave was why did this picture choose you #eltchat
sandymillin 9:07 PM I liked the idea that they were tweaks on 'normal' questions - changing perspectives #eltchat
SueAnnan 9:07 PM She looked at questions teachers ask, then questions they ask their students, then questions students ask #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 9:08 PM @sandymillin we all seem to have focused on the picture question #eltchat
SueAnnan 9:08 PM @KatySDavies  Yes. It helped to get creative answers #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:08 PM @KatySDavies and the thinking behind this? #eltchat
theteacherjames 9:08 PM @Shaunwilden Yes, that was really good twist. Good to provoke & stimulate sts minds. #eltchat
sandymillin 9:08 PM For example 'why did this picture choose you?' 'why not pick a more unusual country for your brochure instead of the standard 1s?' #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:08 PM @SueAnnan OK sounds like  what it should be then #ELTchat so how many Q types do we ask and which ones most useful
sandymillin 9:09 PM @Shaunwilden possibly because she asked variations on it so often! (wonder if that might not get annoying after a while...) #eltchat
Shaunwilden 9:09 PM RT @Marisa_C: So overall, has this talk helped u reflect on types of Qs YOU ask? #eltchat and their functions?
Marisa_C 9:09 PM So overall, has this talk helped u reflect on types of Qs YOU ask? #eltchat and their functions?
Shaunwilden 9:09 PM @theteacherjames though i would have answered cos you gave it to me #eltchat
esolcourses 9:09 PM @Shaunwilden @Marisa_C & questions teachers ask themselves as well, which IMO are just as important (i.e. reflection) #eltchat
jo_sayers 9:09 PM @KatySDavies And were ss able to deal with that? #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:09 PM I think with the 'staring in the face' she was also talking about reflective Qs about your own teaching  #eltchat
SueAnnan 9:10 PM @Marisa_C yes. She mentioned that if you ask students Do you want to read that again? it was better than them having to request it #ELTChat
KatySDavies 9:10 PM @jankenb2  not really  #eltchat
sandymillin 9:10 PM @Shaunwilden @theteacherjames but that's cos you're sarcastic ;) #eltchat
theteacherjames 9:10 PM @Marisa_C I'm always asking Qs, but after watching this, probably not enough variety. #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:10 PM @esolcourses @Shaunwilden ahhh - u get the cooki all right #eltchat
jankenb2 9:10 PM I wish I had time to view the recording, but did she discuss Ts asking questions & then answering them as a modeling strategy? #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:10 PM I don't think she actually said what level of Ss, and I did wonder if my Ss would cope with that  #eltchat
sandymillin 9:11 PM side note: trying to #eltchat from ip@d and it's not very easy. any tips for best a p p to use?
Shaunwilden 9:11 PM @theteacherjames @sandymillin Moi?! Never! #eltchat
Shaunwilden 9:11 PM @SueAnnan @Marisa_C though i find sts get stressed by the choice :-) #eltchat
theteacherjames 9:11 PM @sandymillin @Shaunwilden You beat me to it Sandy! #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:12 PM @Marisa_C  yes & actually I was thinking that for me the important Qs are the ones that show you're listening n create rapport #eltchat
esolcourses 9:12 PM RT @SueAnnan: @Marisa_C yes. She mentioned that if you ask students Do you want to read that again? it was better than them having to reque…
Shaunwilden 9:12 PM @sandymillin i always have trouble keeping up on my pad #eltchat
sandymillin 9:12 PM “@SueAnnan: @Shaunwilden @Marisa_C I find it works for my guys when I do that #ELTChat†me too
SueAnnan 9:12 PM @Shaunwilden @Marisa_C I find it works for my guys when I do that #ELTChat
SueAnnan 9:13 PM @shaznosel that's what she said #ELTChat
Marisa_C 9:13 PM so it sounds like she got u thinking abt Qs to provoke student thinking not just checkin comrehension etc #eltchat
sandymillin 9:13 PM RT @KatySDavies: @Marisa_C  yes & actually I was thinking that for me the important Qs are the ones that show you're listening n create rap…
shaznosel 9:13 PM @SueAnnan Seems a fair point- as Ss may be afraid to ask - so putting youself in ss shoes?
Shaunwilden 9:13 PM RT @KatySDavies: @Marisa_C  yes & actually I was thinking that for me the important Qs are the ones that show you're listening n create rap…
Shaunwilden 9:14 PM @Marisa_C She also did an activity to show how to encourage sts to question #eltchat
shaznosel 9:14 PM @SueAnnan Oh! Couldn't hear the vid so was lip reading! #eltchat
sandymillin 9:14 PM so one of our questions should always be: how would I feel in your place?  #eltchat we need to remember how it feels to be a student
Shaunwilden 9:14 PM @Marisa_C Yes she covered everything from CCQs thru to  provoking creativity #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:14 PM It's interesting for me - I'm asking u Qs to reconstruct her talk right now :-) #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:14 PM definitely - and getting Ss to ask Qs themselves (e.g we're going to talk about topic of friendship, write down 5 Qs)  #eltchat
jankenb2 9:15 PM Of the various types of ?s, did she note which were the most or the  least used by Ts? #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:15 PM although she didn't really touch on this it got me thinkin bout Q basics again - like I'm sure I don't wait long enough 4 answers!  #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:15 PM I think that's where a lot of materials are lacking - Ss don't get to ask enough Qs #eltchat - usually T does this
shaznosel 9:15 PM @sandymillin Top priority I say ..not always easy to remember! #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:16 PM @sandymillin @KatySDavies @yearinthelifeof Well Qs don't necessarily have to be interrogative forms! #ELtchat so quite relevant
sandymillin 9:16 PM @Marisa_C didn't @englishraven write some materials to try and prompt more questions from/by students? #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:16 PM @Marisa_C  yes or reformulating the Q again and again and just confusing the issue - guilty!  #eltchat
Shaunwilden 9:16 PM @jankenb2 no but thats an interesting thought - which would you say is then ? #eltchat
theteacherjames 9:16 PM @sandymillin At least with Hootsuite, you can see the #eltchat stream and mentions at the same time. A big easier than the Twitter app.
Marisa_C 9:16 PM @KatySDavies waiting time often key  - i often see Ts rushing in impatiently not allowing thinking time #eltchat
sandymillin 9:16 PM @KatySDavies Reminds me of this post by @yearinthelifeof http://t.co/QaC0gx4bIQ - not strictly questions, but could be #eltchat
SueAnnan 9:16 PM she also said that students tend to ask factual qs about pics, but if someone asks an interesting q, the others catch on quick #ELTChat
Marisa_C 9:17 PM Great game "Questions Please" with T only allowed yes/no answers for Ss to guess sth - story, text etc #eLTchat
sandymillin 9:17 PM RT @Marisa_C: @KatySDavies waiting time often key  - i often see Ts rushing in impatiently not allowing thinking time #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:17 PM @sandymillin thanks for that Sandy  #eltchat
shaznosel 9:17 PM @KatySDavies Yes..sometimes we don't acknowledge our ss need time to think and then use the L2 to express themselves #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:18 PM @MarjorieRosenbe teacher questions and student questions #eltchat
theteacherjames 9:18 PM @KatySDavies Oh yes, that takes a lot of determination. "Wait, wait, wait…" #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 9:18 PM Just got home.what is exact topic? #eltchat
sandymillin 9:19 PM Today my SS were remembering questions they had before they came to/in their first week @ihnewcastle - next step=answers in a video #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:19 PM reminds me of great iatefl sess we went to @sandymillin bout exploratory practice n Ss chose Qs like 'why is spelling difficult'  #eltchat
shaznosel 9:19 PM @sandymillin Vicious circle - if we prompt - are we allowing them to think for themselves?
Shaunwilden 9:19 PM @MarjorieRosenbe We're discussing around the topic of the power of questions which is one of the recorded #iatefl talks #eltchat
theteacherjames 9:19 PM RT @Marisa_C: @KatySDavies waiting time often key  - i often see Ts rushing in impatiently not allowing thinking time #eltchat
sandymillin 9:20 PM @shaznosel i think it was more general prompting - as in, setting up a lesson based on SS questions not T ones #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:20 PM @jankenb2 Planning of Qs definitely works so much better for me  #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:20 PM Francoise Grellet has a great typology of Qs for reading in her book http://t.co/IpxwmvCgzx #ELTchat
sandymillin 9:20 PM @theteacherjames @KatySDavies Who was it who said, you should count 1000,2000,3000 like a parachute jumper? Maybe @AnthonyGaughan? #eltchat
jankenb2 9:20 PM @Shaunwilden Ts can rely on one type 2 & over use one form & avoid others. Trick is to plan out ?s as part of overal strategy. #eltchat
jankenb2 9:21 PM This reminds me a a game use w/middle schoolers. It was a question tree. Pen one general & then drill down w/specific ?s only. Fun #eltchat
sandymillin 9:21 PM @KatySDavies #eltchat Yes - students often come up with very different q's to teachers, and offers a lot of insight
Shaunwilden 9:21 PM @jankenb2 i agree with planning out ?s esp for a starting teacher #eltchat
sandymillin 9:22 PM RT @Shaunwilden: @jankenb2 i agree with planning out ?s esp for a starting teacher #eltchat
shaznosel 9:22 PM @theteacherjames I agree - thinking time and time to compose the answer is not always given by T, silence is not good?? #eltchat
sandymillin 9:22 PM @KatySDavies one of my SS asked today why some older people here can be a bit racist at times. led to very interesting discussion #eltchat
theteacherjames 9:22 PM @sandymillin @KatySDavies I don't remember, but it was a good idea! #eltchat
shaznosel 9:23 PM @sandymillin with you - I couldn't hear the vid..so a lot of guess work! #eltchat
fedeanna1 9:23 PM RT @shaznosel: @theteacherjames I agree - thinking time and time to compose the answer is not always given by T, silence is not good?? #elt…
Marisa_C 9:23 PM RT @theteacherjames: @shaznosel Yes, teachers can be scared of silence.  #eltchat > unfortunately
Shaunwilden 9:23 PM RT @theteacherjames: @shaznosel Yes, teachers can be scared of silence.  #eltchat
theteacherjames 9:23 PM @shaznosel Yes, teachers can be scared of silence.  #eltchat
sandymillin 9:23 PM @jankenb2 can you give an example - sounds intriguing, but not quite sure what you mean? #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:24 PM @sandymillin oh dear, gotta love Newcastle! Yes & sometimes the potentially difficult Qs ss ask each other can open up gd debate  #eltchat
MicaelaCarey 9:24 PM I teach Young learners and I love silence in the classroom!  #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:25 PM So just wrap up on the question types she mentions - elicitation, checking( CCQs and ICQs) stimulating/provoking thinkingany other? #ELtchat
KatySDavies 9:25 PM @theteacherjames I did Silent Way 4 Delta exploratory practice n it was amazing how much more space there was 4 Ss 2engage with Qs  #eltchat
jankenb2 9:25 PM @sandymillin Ts pose a general ? on the board. Teams essentially create a concept map using ?s instead of facts. Generates novel L #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:26 PM @KatySDavies yes! Silent way does that!!! isn't it great... as tool for embracing teacher silence!!! #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 9:26 PM @Marisa_C I think thats most of them #eltchat
theteacherjames 9:26 PM @KatySDavies Yes, I'd love to try it at some point, must be fascinating. #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:28 PM Silent Way def showed me the value of Qs that are not immediately clear / don't seem to make sense  #eltchat
prese1 9:28 PM Hello.I haven't watched the video so I'm lurking today. Silent way? #eltchat
shaznosel 9:28 PM @MicaelaCarey There is never silence in my YL classes!-they are willing to take risks..older ss need time to think/anaylise #eltchat
jankenb2 9:28 PM @sandymillin Ex What is weather? What are seasons? What is winter etc. Ech ? linked to general. Can B wild, using CT & logic #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:28 PM @Marisa_C  it was eye opening - especially to see the quieter Ss coming into their own as the louder ones got quickly frustrated  #eltchat
shaznosel 9:29 PM @airkomvux Always in their shoes..
SueAnnan 9:29 PM @Marisa_C interesting idea #ELTchat
Marisa_C 9:29 PM if you record yourself time your waiting time between a Q and a student answer #ELtchat
Shaunwilden 9:29 PM @prese1 it's an approach to teaching - here's what onestop says about it http://t.co/K3ZcOS6UmL #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:29 PM @jankenb2 I love this idea #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:29 PM recorg yourself and each time u ask a question note what type it was - generates a profile of u as a T #ELTchat
airkomvux 9:29 PM RT @sandymillin: so one of our questions should always be: how would I feel in your place?  #eltchat we need to remember how it feels to be…
Shaunwilden 9:30 PM @Marisa_C that's an interesting idea, what kind of length of gap would you expect? #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:30 PM @Marisa_C oooh yes, I definitely need to do this, thanks  #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 9:30 PM Just presented learning styles book & showed personal mindmap-give some info, srs ask to get info. #eltchat colleagues loved it
prese1 9:30 PM @Shaunwilden Thanks #eltchat
MicaelaCarey 9:31 PM @shaznosel  true- YLs are very confident when speaking but I meant when they're working or listening to me ask questions #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 9:31 PM Obe colleague thought she could use personal mindmap for sts to ask each other q's about research questions #eltchat
theteacherjames 9:31 PM So I think we've gone slightly off topic. What about the more philosophical kind of questions that T's ask themselves? #eltchat
SueAnnan 9:31 PM very dodgy connection tonight. sorry. I think tweetdeck is on its last legs #ELTchat
jankenb2 9:32 PM @theteacherjames @shaznosel Wait Time needs to allow 2-step processing of translating target lang to 1st lang then process concept #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:32 PM thinking about gaps before answers, I also like Qs that Ss ask when there's not an immediate answer e.g writing Qs 2ask ppl at home #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 9:32 PM Sts like asking personal q's - also asking me. #eltchat
theteacherjames 9:32 PM @Shaunwilden Yeah, kind of! #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:32 PM @Shaunwilden nospecific no of seconds - but it's interesting to observe and make a note of it - in conjunction w if Ss answered #eltchat
sandymillin 9:32 PM @MarjorieRosenbe Did a very similar lesson to that on Monday and was going to blog it, so will try to link to your book now :) #eltchat
Shaunwilden 9:32 PM @theteacherjames like why i am here, why do i do this? ;-) #eltchat
shaznosel 9:32 PM @Marisa_C When I ask a question..I try to think how long would I need to answer this in Greek? I know how they feel. #eltchat
Shaunwilden 9:33 PM @Marisa_C Yes i think it would be a good little piece of self-research. I wonder if there are marked correlations with teaching exp #eltchat
ShellTerrell 9:33 PM Join American TESOL Institute’s Group on LinkedIn http://t.co/y68K5NZ3CZ #esl #eltchat
shaznosel 9:33 PM @MicaelaCarey True but YLs are always asking questions but often in L1 as they need immmediate feedback.. #eltchat
theteacherjames 9:33 PM She mentioned the Q "How can I make my classroom more democratic?" Do you ask yourself q's like this? #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:33 PM I often suggest the pair & share idea to my trainees - ask a Q let Ss discuss answer in prs then publicly #ELTchat generates more st talk
MarjorieRosenbe 9:33 PM Sorry couldn't do hw- mon- wed full with classes #eltchat
sandymillin 9:33 PM @theteacherjames For example...? #eltchat Only managed to watch about half of the video...did she mention any?
sandymillin 9:34 PM @KatySDavies @theteacherjames or the truly philosophical nes you can never answer.One of my SS currently obsessed with chicken/egg! #eltchat
esolcourses 9:34 PM RT @theteacherjames: She mentioned the Q "How can I make my classroom more democratic?" Do you ask yourself q's like this? #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:34 PM @theteacherjames I guess most often, why did that go badly / why did that go well  #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 9:34 PM RT @Marisa_C: I often suggest the pair & share idea to my trainees - ask a Q let Ss discuss answer in prs then publicly #ELTchat generates …
hartle 9:34 PM #eltchat hi everyone, sorry I'm late. i'll try to catch up
MarjorieRosenbe 9:35 PM @KatySDavies @theteacherjames Great q's. Often think about these. #eltchat
esolcourses 9:35 PM @theteacherjames really good question I thought, and yes.  #eltchat
Shaunwilden 9:35 PM RT @theteacherjames: She mentioned the Q "How can I make my classroom more democratic?" Do you ask yourself q's like this? #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:35 PM @Shaunwilden there is research abt types of Qs and size of responses #ELTchat Closed -convergent thinking Qs = shorter st responses #eltchat
fedeanna1 9:36 PM RT @hartle: #eltchat hi everyone, sorry I'm late. i'll try to catch up
Marisa_C 9:37 PM @hartle good term 'display' questions mentioned in research paper just mentioned #eltchat
Shaunwilden 9:37 PM @Marisa_C thanks #eltchat
shaznosel 9:37 PM @Shaunwilden Did she mean more fair/integrating weak with positive ss? #eltchat
MicaelaCarey 9:37 PM @shaznosel they certainly do! Shows their interest in the topic.  #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:37 PM @Shaunwilden Here is one such paper  #ELTchat http://t.co/0lnTmrGIJ4

hartle 9:37 PM #eltchat she didn't really discuss this but one of probs with trainees is that they ask too many display qus, rather than real communication
hartle 9:38 PM #eltchat asking qus that gi beyond the obvious is essential, I think, so qus like "why did the pic choose me?" can be really effective.
shaznosel 9:38 PM @MicaelaCarey That's great - interest generates language and so q's! #eltchat
shaznosel 9:39 PM @theteacherjames My sons agree with you! Egg! #eltchat
theteacherjames 9:39 PM What kinds of questions can ask ourselves? Reflective? Value based? #eltchat
jankenb2 9:39 PM Another fun game to stim novel lang is 2 challenge Ss 2 reveal bias. Ss R 2 generate a counter ? for every ? Ts poses on disc topic #eltchat
theteacherjames 9:39 PM @sandymillin @KatySDavies Chicken and egg? The answer is egg. #eltchat #sorted
sandymillin 9:39 PM .@geml1 did a 6 week self-reflection. one week was about asking questions and wait time http://t.co/PRwVwEQzX6 #eltchat
hartle 9:40 PM RT @Marisa_C: @hartle good term 'display' questions #eltchat... :-) it's natural as trainees come to terms with LA but no real communication
theteacherjames 9:40 PM RT @Shaunwilden: @theteacherjames Surely we should always questions ourselves? #eltchat
Shaunwilden 9:40 PM @theteacherjames Surely we should always questions ourselves? #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:40 PM i like one category which we haven't mentioned Qs which stimulate Ss to pursue further knowledge #eltchat
esolcourses 9:40 PM @Marisa_C @Shaunwilden cheers for the cookie, Marisa! nom > nom > nom > nom > nom > nom > :-) #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:40 PM Saw great talk bout PD sessions: on PostIt write 3things u know a lot about& 3Qs u'd like to know more about, n swap knowledge #eltchat
theteacherjames 9:41 PM RT @sandymillin: .@geml1 did a 6 week self-reflection. one week was about asking questions and wait time http://t.co/PRwVwEQzX6 #eltchat

theteacherjames 9:41 PM @Shaunwilden Should yes, but I wonder how many do? #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:41 PM @theteacherjames the session wasn't related to chickens or eggs though sorry! #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:42 PM #ELTchat
shaznosel 9:42 PM @hartle Exactly - 'display questions' show knowledge not communication abilities. #eltchat
theteacherjames 9:42 PM @KatySDavies We'll be doing something like that at our BELTA day next month. cant't wait! #eltchat
hartle 9:43 PM #eltchat here's quick ex I made for exam prep. with questions that go beyond display http://t.co/H5cKBmT2gx
esolcourses 9:44 PM RT @hartle: #eltchat here's quick ex I made for exam prep. with questions that go beyond display http://t.co/tIeQsyg5Im
hartle 9:44 PM RT @Marisa_C: i like one category which we haven't mentioned Qs which stimulate Ss to pursue further knowledge #eltchat
Shaunwilden 9:44 PM @Marisa_C cheers marisa, that looks well worth reading #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:45 PM Flipping the tables on the Ss may generate more Qs e.g each grp bring a text and test the T #eltchat
hartle 9:45 PM RT @Marisa_C: #ELTchat
Marisa_C 9:46 PM @Shaunwilden Oui #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:46 PM @Marisa_C interesting - in that document 1study shows approx 60% of Qs in classroom = lower cognitive, 20% higher & 20% procedural  #eltchat
shaznosel 9:46 PM @Marisa_C Interesting read! Good points which we should all think about - take Socrates as an example! #eltchat
Shaunwilden 9:46 PM @Marisa_C test the teacher?#eltchat
shaznosel 9:47 PM @Shaunwilden We can only test ourselves! Reflection - questions for us!!?? #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 9:47 PM Also try to get sts to think through q's. Was in NYC blackout & asked them what happens when all power is out. Made them think. #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:47 PM @KatySDavies think abt the time u do ICQs not? #eltchat
Shaunwilden 9:47 PM @Marisa_C Ok my question wasn't so good then, i asked it to encourage ou to elaborate :-) #eltchat
hartle 9:47 PM #eltchat difficult for ts to understand what is in st heads if we don't ask them how they feel. I did recent poll on Facbook re correction.
jankenb2 9:48 PM @Marisa_C Gr8. Research on Ts self assess vs actual practice w/complex ?s revealing. Ts over estimate the # of complex ?s they ask. #eltchat
hartle 9:48 PM #eltchat Bloom taxonomy qus useful model too
Marisa_C 9:48 PM @Shaunwilden obviously but no time to - yes ok write Qs on the text to test T and other grps #ELTchat
sandymillin 9:49 PM Here are those @englishraven materials I mentioned to get students to ask questions http://t.co/IWpktfSFn7 #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:50 PM I think in general the amount and quality of Teacher Talk (w Qs) is sth worth investigating via recordings which now easy peasy #eltchat
sandymillin 9:50 PM @hartle how do you actually use Bloom's taxonomy for asking questions? still haven't really grasped how it works #eltchat
theteacherjames 9:50 PM RT @sandymillin: Here are those @englishraven materials I mentioned to get students to ask questions http://t.co/IWpktfSFn7 #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:51 PM @sandymillin @hartle Bloom indicates cognitive engagement - so much Qs types to levels of complexity higher to lower thinking #eltchat
jankenb2 9:51 PM Other research on Ts ?ing technique is that many Ts do not accurately identify complex ?s. We confuse less complex 4 more complex. #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:52 PM @sandymillin thanks for that - from quick glance like the idea of giving Ss Q stems n they can finish them 2make compQs for a text  #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:52 PM @sandymillin @hartle sorry I meant 'match" not 'much' - match objective to level of Q #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:53 PM Evaluation Qs would be more generative that Recall Qs #ELTchat @sandymillin
Marisa_C 9:54 PM RT @hartle: #eltchat useful little article on the Brit. Council site on qus http://t.co/LHQp0Fnp53 > yes nice - more ELT oriented maybe
kostasgeorgioy 9:54 PM RT @ShellTerrell: via @yearinthelifeof Favourite infographic for April: Tips for Becoming a Digital Teacher http://t.co/t825hMyDwh #eltchat…
shaznosel 9:54 PM @Marisa_C  so encourages ss to use their cognitive skills and aids memory?? #eltchat
hartle 9:54 PM #eltchat useful little article on the Brit. Council site on qus http://t.co/31YlUQH5A3
jankenb2 9:54 PM @sandymillin @hartle I love Blooms.For example (note the hierarchy) Plan a sequence of ?s to guide Ss along #eltchat http://t.co/WBJqfJfz2Q
aphi_cao 9:54 PM @Marisa_C timing so important in multi language class otherwise some grps of Ss will drown out others who are careful/reserved. #eltchat
esolcourses 9:55 PM RT @Marisa_C: #ELTchat
sandymillin 9:55 PM RT @aphi_cao: @Marisa_C timing so important in multi language class otherwise some grps of Ss will drown out others who are careful/reserve…
KatySDavies 9:55 PM @hartle nice link thanks! Interesting figure: "Typically, teachers ask between 300-400 questions per day" - wow!  #eltchat
hartle 9:55 PM @sandymillin #eltchat one way is to ensure a balance of qus, so not just lower order but moving up the scale.
theteacherjames 9:56 PM RT @hartle: #eltchat useful little article on the Brit. Council site on qus http://t.co/31YlUQH5A3

theteacherjames 9:57 PM RT @Shaunwilden: As we get to the end is there a summary writer? #eltchat
theteacherjames 9:57 PM @KatySDavies @hartle I sometimes wonder if my job is really just about asking the right questions at the right times! #eltchat
sandymillin 9:57 PM 2/2 #eltchat Gives them processing time, time to check grammar (difficult!), and means everyone should have sth to ask
KatySDavies 9:57 PM def - e.g asking what you would have done in the shoes of the main character in a story rather than just trad readin omp Qs  #eltchat

sandymillin 9:57 PM Think it's useful to get students to write questions on small squares of paper before discussions sometimes #eltchat 1/2
AnthonyGaughan 9:58 PM @sandymillin @theteacherjames @KatySDavies yup, that was me: http://t.co/NGAb7V0cZr #eltchat
KatySDavies 9:58 PM @sandymillin yes, and if they can see each others Qs before the discussion the shy Ss might feel more confident in askin their Qs  #eltchat

theteacherjames 9:58 PM Here's the most crucial question of all: who would like to be our summary writer? #eltchat
Marisa_C 9:58 PM @KatySDavies  Grellet defines this as a supposition Q - which def creative thinking and higher order thinking #ELTchat
jankenb2 9:59 PM Using complex ?s may limit the # of ?s you focus on during class. That is ok 2, b/c Ss are generating novel lang using syn & analy. #eltchat
hartle 9:59 PM RT @theteacherjames: @KatySDavies @hartle I sometimes wonder if my job is really just about asking the right questions at the right times! …
hartle 9:59 PM #eltchat in any case thinking abt the qus we ask is really important particularly if we want out tewching to foster demand high work :-)
