The Power of Effective Questioning Strategies ~ Nicole Biscotti

From the Twitter Archives, August 31, 2019… this tweet became the basis for one of my educational resolutions at the start of 2020, before the pandemic changed my halcyon little resolution activity.


When Students ask Questions they:

1. Take responsibility
2. Are engaged
3. Have confidence
4. Trust their Teachers
5. Are empowered
How do we support & empower our Students by encouraging inquiry in our classrooms?

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ August 14

“We now live in a world where we have public lives and private lives — and for over a century now, since roughly the point at which the above article appeared, the portion of our lives considered ‘public’ has been expanding, while the portion of our lives we can consider ‘private’ has been contracting… Never before have we faced so many opportunities to turn the formerly-private into the newly-public. As those opportunities arise, many people adopt them, and turn “public” into the new norm for such activities. Eventually, the norms become societally entrenched,” ~Felix Salmon
