Minds On Fire! The Importance Of Classroom Questions To Learning Outcomes, Eleanor Dougherty, Terry Roberts, Ann Pihlgren

ICOT 18 - International Conference on Thinking - Cultivating Mindsets for Global Citizens

This session addresses the ICOT question, "How do we develop mindfulness and thinking dispositions to learn?" The presenters detail three models involving questioning and prompting strategies to elicit specific types of thinking and learning responses: closed and open questioning, questions to elicit metacognitive responses, and the Paideia Seminar model. Attendees will learn about each model, engage in exercises with each model, and receive tasks they can use in their classrooms.
