One of the vital skills of teaching is that of nurturing questioning – and making sure quantity is matched by quality
The important thing,’ Albert Einstein once said, ‘is not to stop questioning.’
There can be few finer accolades in a primary classroom than ‘Good question’ and we need to encourage children to ask them and not leave it to their teachers. This month’s ‘Teacher MOT’ article reminds us to start the questioning process at a personal level. Encouraging children to ask each other what they did at the weekend, how they are feeling today, about any special events taking place in their lives, and so on.
