Critical Questioning

Question: How does one teach “critical questioning”?

Answer—Quote: “Since I wanted my students to become more critical, it was important that I model critical questioning.” P. 31.

Comment: An important point. If teachers want to teach any sort of behavior, they need to behave themselves in that way. If they want students to learn how to lead a discussion, for example, teachers need to demonstrate how to lead a discussion and then discuss with students how they did it. RayS.
