Event Type

This professional development provides an opportunity for teachers to learn how to use good questions to prompt and encourage students to demonstrate higher order thinking (HOT) as categorized by Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy and understand and use their depth of knowledge in different contexts as designated by Webb’s Depth-of-Knowledge (DOK) levels. Questioning is a tool to hook student curiosity to learn, assess and build foundational knowledge and deepen understanding.
