Questioning Skills Training Sessions (x5)
  • The purpose of these sessions is to foster questioning skills, Higher-Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) and critical-thinking skills.

    These skills to play an important role in the broader project of enhancing metacognition and self-regulated learning in students since developing questioning skills allows for greater independence and allows students to more effectively monitor, evaluate and regulate their learning-processes. That said: critical-thinking and questioning skills are, in an age of misinformation, fake news, and mass-propaganda, valuable thinking skills that constitute ends in themselves.

     Each of the sessions contains four phases:


    1. 'What Makes a Good Question?'
    2. Generating Philosophical Questions
    3. Using Questions in Critical-Thinking
    4. Questioning Experts


    These PowerPoint sessions are fairly flexible and consist of many short discussion questions instead of more lengthily tasks: each one contains 25+ slides and is, therefore, suitable for more than one session. The exercises generally involve question-generation: the prompts deal with metacognitive issues, broader questions from the wider curriculum, and matters relating to self-regulated learning.
