Research Finding #1: Teachers Ask Many Questions
A few carefully prepared or selected questions that match instructional objectives and promote thinking are preferable to large numbers of questions.
Use these questions and prompts to promote discourse in your classroom.
Sample questions: I agree/disagree because …. I think ….because …. How do you know that? What do you mean? Can you give some examples? What would happen if … Can you explain that? Why are you using … What operation should be use
Research Finding #2: Most teacher questions are at the lowest cognitive level—known as fact, recall, or knowledge.
Teachers should purposefully plan and ask questions that require students to engage in higher-level thinking.

Questions without numbers
DOK Question Activity--DOK levels with challenge to write a question at different levels.
Questions Matching DOK levels This handout has questions matched to DOK levels.
Research Finding #3: Not all students are accountable to respond to all questions. Teachers frequently call on volunteers, and these volunteers constitute a select group of students—especially in traditional settings.
Managing Response Rates Take a look at these strategies, think pair share, clock partners, choral response and many more to make your classroom more interactive and promote EVERY student sharing and learning.
Big List of Class Discussion Strategies contains several strategies to help students become active learning.
Research Finding #4: Teachers typically wait less than 1 second after asking a question before calling on a student to answer. (Wait Time #1) They wait even less time before speaking after the student has answered. (Wait Time #2)
Economics Video Example
Research Finding #5: Teachers often accept incorrect answers without probing and they frequently answer their own questions.
Teachers should seek to understand incorrect or incomplete answers more completely by gently guiding student thinking with appropriate probes.
Research Finding #6: Students ask very few content-related questions.
Post It, Prove It Post a skill and have students post verification that they know the skill. Post the answer and have students post a question with that answer. "Give an equation with a solution of 6."
