Teaching Students to Generate Questions
In this activity, D.E.A.Q., you and your learners are going to “Drop Everything and Question.”
The process of this activity calls upon the use of a timer. As the educator, you will determine how long you want the learners to “question.”
An assigned topic has to be given to each of the groups. Learners will work in groups to help facilitate the question generating.
When the timer starts, each group has to come up with as many questions about the topic.
When time is called, each group has to pass in the questions that have been generated.
All of the questions are reviewed, and then the most pertinent ones are used for the following discussion.
At this stage, you as the educator will determine easy, medium, and difficult questions.
When reviewing questions, be sure to remember the appropriate difficulty level for each learner in your class.
