Day 17: #SOL16- Happy Question Week


The Slice of Life Challenge is hosted by the inspirational writers of Two Writing Teachers. Each March, they invite people to join them in a commitment to write every day. Here's to another year of daily slicing!



I wish I had known earlier in the month that this week is National Questioning Week. As it was, I saw something about it in a tweet on Tuesday. If anyone has interest, head over to The Right Question website. You will find tons of ideas, articles, links, and resources for incorporating more student engagement by inspiring students to ask important questions. There are videos of the Question Formulation Technique used in classrooms, and even though the featured classes are secondary ones, it's a strategy that I've used in elementary classrooms, as well. Check out some of the #questionweek tweets as well, as there are great images of charts, question scaffolds, and samples of student work. 

In honor of Question Week, I read Encounter by Jane Yolen to a group of fifth-graders, and I had them ask questions. I have to say, students listen very differently when they are generating questions. 

Happy Question Week,
