6 Tiers of Questioning: Incorporating Bloom’s Taxonomy


Application: All subjects/grade levels

It isn’t until we dive into the world of teaching when we realize the true importance of effective questioning. It seems like a simple concept: Pose a question, wait for a hand to go up, call on the student, and hope the answer fulfils your expectations. There is, however, a science behind the art of questioning. Teachers must consider question types, variations in difficulty, appropriate wait time, and what to do with received responses (or lack thereof). Teachers enrolled in this course will explore the possibilities, variations, and applications of Bloom’s Taxonomy as well as the varied tactics of operative questioning. Suitable all K-12!
