Designed for teachers, this advanced-level asynchronous course will help you teach students how to pose better questions, identify different kinds of questions, and focus on the questions that will best help them build their understanding of the selection after a first reading. You will learn how to stimulate students' initial curiosity about a specific text and help them learn to zero in on parts of the selection that may raise questions. You will also learn how to help students identify the types of questions they have formulated and how to best answer their questions. This course focuses on the sharing questions activity, but the strategies you will learn will help students develop a process that enables them to have the confidence to ask their own questions about any text they may encounter.
