Questioning Strategies

  • NEA-Alaska/AEA Offices, Downstairs Training Room

Teachers are being evaluated on the quality of student questioning and engagement in their classroom, yet, many say that getting students to ask their own questions can feel 'like pulling teeth.' Develop your ability to teach students how to produce their own questions, improve them, and strategize on how to use them. Transform students into active, engaged learners, who take ownership of their learning using the Questions Formulation Technique (QFT).

ESSA COMMUNITY FORUM

  • Bartlett High School

AEA along with partners (on flyer to right) are holding a Community Forum in an effort to hear what our Anchorage Community thinks Anchorage Students Deserve. The new education law, the Every Student Succeeds Act (the No Child Left Behind replacement) requires stakeholder input be included in the state and local plans. Stakeholders include ALL community members. After a short introduction, we will split into smaller facilitated groups to be able to truly hear our community members' voices. We will end the Forum with a panel (to include Dr. Susan MacCauley with the Department of Education and Early Development, Dr. Paramo - Superintendent of Anchorage School District and a parent, student and educator) to get an idea of what came out of the community conversations and how we can use what we learned to move forward. Please spread the word!
