Three Powerpoint slides encouraging small and whole group inquiry.
Concept stretching with questions
SOMETIMES YOU MAY want your pupils to focus on a particular concept in a structured way through reflecting on a set of questions you provide. You might also use these kinds of questions as a model for the pupils’ own ongoing questioning about concepts. For example, here is a series of questions following on from an initial question about friendship: ‘Should we always agree with our friends? If we disagree with our friends, should tell them we disagree? Are there times when we shouldn’t tell our friends we disagree with them? Are there times when it is essential that we should tell our friends when we disagree with them?’
The key document will explain how to use the opinions presented in this section.
