What are some different Questioning Strategies?
Student reciprocal questioning refers to an interactive verbal dialogue that begins initially with guidance from a facilitator but progresses to self-regulation by the student him/herself. The facilitator may be an instructor, a tutor, or another student.
The reciprocal questioning process may be divided four components. The first involves summarization of the information. This is followed by clarification of the information. The third component is generation of questions based on the information. Prediction during verbal interaction between and among the facilitator and student(s) is the fourth component.
These are questions which touch our hearts and souls. They are central to our lives. They help to define what it means to be human.
