Additional Book Details

Realize the potential of quality questioning for student thinking and learning



Jackie Walsh and Beth Sattes present quality questioning as a process that begins with the preparation of questions to engage all students in thinking and culminates in the facilitation of dialogue that takes learning deeper. This new edition of the bestseller organizes questioning practices around the 6Ps framework, composed of Prepare and Present the Question, Prompt Student Thinking, Process Student Responses, Polish Questioning Practices, and Partner with Students. It extends and expands on timeless principles while adding significant new research-based practices and insights derived from the authors’ own learning with and from classroom teachers. Designed for immediate classroom use, this guide includes:

Graphics, tools, and strategies to develop student skills and create a classroom culture that nurtures thinking and learning
QR codes that link to more than twenty new videos depicting students and teachers from elementary through high school
Tools and strategies to support teacher engagement in personal reflection, classroom observations, and collaborative dialogue that improve personal practice

This exciting new book demonstrates how to seamlessly integrate effective questioning strategies into daily practice, thereby energizing teaching and learning. 


"Questions are the most important tool in a teacher’s toolbox. Walsh and Sattes teach us how to sharpen those tools and use the right ones to maximize learning. They understand that questioning isn’t interrogation, but rather frames dialogic instruction. You can see this come to life in the videos throughout this book! Quality Questioning belongs on every thoughtful educator’s bookshelf."
