Additionally, I am an advocate for getting rid of the “sit and get” style of PD. Neither adults nor students want to be talked at for an hour straight. Questioning is a perfect example of this. Questioning is an area that we all could improve upon (myself included). However, we have all attended generic questioning PDs where we get a list of Bloom’s Taxonomy verbs and review Depth of Knowledge, and leave really no better than we came in.
When discussing the idea of questioning as a topic for a Tuesday PD, the math coordinator and I saw this as an opportunity to step up our game when it came to PD.
