When to Use Question Stems


Question stems naturally guide students toward asking questions that require higher levels of cognitive complexity. This PD Byte explores question stems, reveals when to use them, and provides question stem cards for 12 types of commonly used questions. You will practice techniques for getting students to ask questions that foster deeper learning and inspire curiosity about what you're teaching. Student practice with question stems enables them to shift their thinking away from expecting teacher prompts and toward rich student-led discussions.
