Thinking Though Quality Questioning provides teachers with an accessible, research-based blueprint for developing student meta-cognitive skills and ensuring that students take responsibility for their own learning. In this groundbreaking book, Walsh and Sattes use the findings of cognitive scientists to highlight quality questioning behaviors and explain how to connect these to discrete student meta-cognitive outcomes. Each chapter explicates teacher best practice in questioning and relates this to how students think and how they can be trained to manage their own learning.

Product Description

Review

"This book delivers on the double meaning of its title. It makes a compelling argument that quality questioning is the primary catalyst for thinking in the classroom and offers practical tools for crafting questions worth thinking about. I have found no better resource for unleashing the power of questioning as a force for student learning in the 21st century than Thinking Through Quality Questioning."

(Nancy Love, Author and Program Director 2011-02-03)

"Any educator who believes that our students MUST be able to think deeply in order to flourish in our world today and in the future, will not be able to put this book down!" (Sally Piepenbrink, State School Improvement Specialist 2011-03-01)

Thinking Through Quality Questioning is an excellent resource for teachers to promote student thinking, student engagement and hold students accountable for their learning. The power of this book is that it not only outlines teacher behaviors but it specifically connects them to student outcomes and behaviors. It truly supports the notion of students being more involved in the classroom translates into increased student learning!” (Jamalya Jackson, Director, Professional Development and New Teacher Induction 2011-03-01)

“I believe one of our goals as teachers is to have students who can think at high levels and apply that knowledge across disciplines. Thinking Through Quality Questioning is a practical way for teachers to guide students as thinkers not just doers in the classroom. The book gives support to teachers as they promote personal responsibility for learning in their classrooms. I recommend this book to all teachers as they continue guiding students through this journey.” (Melissa M. Adams, Assistant Principal 2011-03-01)

"The skillful use of questioning in a classroom is vital to student engagement and learning. It's difficult to imagine a classroom in which students are involved in deep conceptual learning that did not depend for its success on the teacher's use of questions to promote thinking and engagement. The authors fully explore this important topic." (Charlotte Danielson, Author and Educational Consultant 2011-03-01)

"Be prepared to question how you teach. Thinking through Quality Questioning provides an easy to follow format of how teachers can authentically engage students and instill in them a desire to question and search for answers. A must-read for teachers!" (Sharon Sigley, 3rd Grade Teacher 2011-03-02)

Thinking Through Quality Questioning not only provides the tools needed to frame effective questions, it also provides the structures necessary to elicit thoughtful student responses and dialogue. The book guides educators through the process of creating a classroom rich in productive interactions by providing both practical examples and supporting frameworks." (Jamie Parris, Director of Secondary Math and Science 2011-03-02)

"For educators who value student engagement, inquiry, and self-efficacy, this is the book. Based on 22 years of study, Jackie Walsh and Beth Sattes provide a framework for posing quality questions that promote student metacognition and responsibility, as well as provide feedback to inform instruction. As partners in learning, teachers and students will both benefit as a result of the researched knowledge and practical strategies offered in Thinking through Quality Questioning." (Katie Bazzani, K-12 Staff Development Specialist 2011-03-09)

“The critical challenge for educators today is to successfully prepare students for a world which we don’t yet know, and for jobs that don’t yet exist. Schools must transform students into independent, lifelong learners equipped to make thoughtful decisions. Thinking through Quality Questioning is a valuable resource for teachers committed to helping students learn how to learn." (Sherrill W. Parris, Assistant State Superintendent of Education 2011-03-09)

“Anyone in an educational leadership position knows the pressure to do more with less. Thinking through Quality Questioning reminded me that providing teachers with quality teaching tools is the best and most inexpensive means of improving teaching and learning. The book is clear, concise, and well-researched. As a recently retired superintendent, I can easily see this book becoming the focus for a year-long book study and professional learning experience.” (Joy B. Williams, Superintendent 2011-03-10)

“Teachers and educational leaders will expand their students’ thinking by doing what the authors so eloquently model in Thinking Through Quality Questioning: focus on questions prior to teaching, create an environment for questioning, provide feedback and assist the learner in the development of their own thoughtfulness. It is remarkable to note that a book can model behavior! In an era of 'quick fixes' which result in short-term gains, Quality Questioning will result in purposeful, careful and thoughtful educators AND their students!” (Jody M. Westbrook, Executive Director 2011-03-10)

"Quality Questioning has provided an invaluable framework for our staff by supporting our adopting effective questioning practices and monitoring student response patterns school wide. Our faculty has found value in sharing and discussing the Quality Questioning practices and creating an environment conducive to inquiry and reflection. It is our belief that Thinking Through Quality Questioning goes beyond improving teacher practice to provide tools teachers can use to support students in becoming active, responsible learners through a reciprocal process of questioning, discussion, and response." (Debbie Brooks, Principal 2011-04-20)

“With a solid foundation in research, Thinking Through Quality Questioning reestablishes an essential element of a fully engaged classroom—teachers and students sharing control of instructional decision making. Walsh and Sattes’s strong emphasis on nurturing new norms for students’ metacognitive awareness, responsibility, and personal self-determination is long overdue! Well Done!” (John Barell, Author of "Why Are School Buses Always Yellow?" and Professor Emeritus 2011-04-20)

"Thinking Through Quality Questioning provides a welcome framework that is rigorous in directing teachers to reflect on their practice in ways that are likely to benefit their students, while being flexible enough to be relevant to every teacher." (Dylan Wiliam, Emeritus Professor of Educational Assessment Institute of Education 2011-05-13)

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical life changing book 6 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback
This is perhaps one of the most amazing and practical books that I have ever read, It has totally changed my teaching style and revolutionised my lessons.

The book tackles quality questioning in a step by step manner, relying on research and modelsm done by the authors and others during the past years.

To me this book is really at the cutting edge of education, merging both Kagan methods and thinking skills, aiming to produce teachers who enable students to be indepedent learners. It promotes questioning to give students thinking skills and become curious, to work with their teacher and the others around them to become motivated and all round learners.

I have already incorporated many of the suggestions and methods into my teaching in the last few weeks since reading this amazing book. I have used it in both middle and top sets and am plucking up the courage to try it with lower ability students. It has made me rethink much of my teaching and some of the methods I have been using and I have already developed several new lesson plans which utilise the methods promoted in this book very effectively

I can not recommend this book highly enough as a life changing experience and a step in the right direction as far as my career is concerened
