      a colleague and I came up with several great ways to get our 9th grade English classes questioning last year. It has been very successful. It uses Marzano's question stems. I wish I could upload a video to show you. It really was awesome! I would be happy to send you the forms as an example if you are interested. :)

        I'd love to get those forms, Elizabeth. We've had Marzano in our system to speak and lead a few years ago and was amazed at the difference his strategies have made for our teachers.
        We now have many new teachers we are trying to share these strategies with to boost their questioning to obtain higher leveled responses and thinking for our students.

            You can also integrate a very simple process called the Question Formulation Technique. It's focused on teaching all students to ask their own questions. Check out ... you can download free resources there about the strategy. I've found that it is extremely helpful as it engages all students including those who are typically not very engaged.

              Wow, we are struggling with research with 8th grade. We are trying to come up with a great way to teach kids to develop good questions - would love any help or suggestions.

                I would love to have the sample forms if you wouldn't mind sending them. Thank you!
