    Pigeon Mountain - Term 3
    Questioning – Monday 14/9/09
    Trevor Bond {trevor.jpg} Trevor Bond
    Trevor Bond presented a workshop on questioning – not teacher’s questions but rather student questions. He stated that thinking starts with a question and that in order for us to think we have to ask questions. Trevor stated that “Children start school as a question mark and leave school as a full stop.”
    What happens to our students in those years? It is usually teachers who ask questions, and yes asking students the correct type of question does promote deeper thinking, but the ability to formulate questions is an essential skill for students too.

    Trevor Bond presented a workshop on questioning – not teacher’s questions but rather student questions. He stated that thinking starts with a question and that in order for us to think we have to ask questions. Trevor stated that “Children start school as a question mark and leave school as a full stop.”
    What happens to our students in those years? It is usually teachers who ask questions, and yes asking students the correct type of question does promote deeper thinking, but the ability to formulate questions is an essential skill for students too.
    Trevor defined an as ‘Effective Questioner’ is one who can:
    § identify an information need
    § pose a range of ‘relevant questions’
    § take them to a variety of appropriate sources
    § edit questions where necessary
    § persist until they locate the required information.
    We have been lead to believe that the “good” questions are those that have multiple answers and lead us to deeper thinking, but Trevor stated that a yes no question can be the right sort of question to ask in certain circumstances. This caused a stir in the audience as stalwart believers in rich and fertile questions wriggled in their seats.
    Trevor asked the audience to write questions on questioning at the beginning of the session. These questions served a dual purpose; Trevor was able to answer these and he used the questions to analyse and place into his questioning matrix.
    The questioning matrix is used to assess the types of questions students ask. It is a well thought out matrix and has been used in schools with very good results.

    It was a thought provoking session. It wasn’t until a few weeks later that I had a discussion with a fellow cluster member who said they couldn’t stop thinking about Trevor’s workshop; it obviously made her ask a lot of questions in her own mind about questioning.
