    Time Frame:
    from 1 hour to years...
    Summary:
    Developing student capacity to craft, manipulate and reframe questions for stronger learning
    Tasks:
    Create a Classroom Questioning Toolkit
    Set a period of time (3 days? 1 week? 3 weeks?) when you will collect every student question (best done on post-it notes; 1 question per note)
    After collection period is done, ask students to sort & categorize their questions based on type/style of question (students label categories).
    Whole group share of questions, categories and current thinking
    Introduce McKenzie’s Questioning Toolkit
    Ask students to consider categories and question types included in his model
    Discuss the potential benefits of organizing our thinking around things we don’t know or have questions about
    Give students opportunity to regroup questions and/or rename categories based on their current thinking.
    Ask students to share any changes to their categories or questions
    As a class, reach a consensus on the categories and question types you will use to create your own Questioning Toolkit (don’t be afraid to engage them in productive discourse around category labels and/or question types).
    Let students sit with the category headings and question types for about a week, adding any additional questions that surface through the course of various lessons and activities to established categories.
    As a class, discuss any tweaks, adjustments or modifications need to be made to their categories and/or question types given their current thinking
    Once students feel confident in their structure, encourage them to add additional questions, question types and questioning stems over the course of various lessons, units, activities, etc.
