My principal is asking that we plan at least one higher order question in our lesson plans each week. I wanted to get some ideas for what you all would use during the course of a rehearsal as a higher order question. My thought is if I have several “on hand” so to speak, then I could not only include them in my plans, but be ready to use them at unplanned moments too, (for example, during an observations 🙂
Use Bloom’s Taxonomy as a guide. Center your questions around key words from the chart. HOT questions are along the lines of “What do you think this piece is about?” what part of the message would you change? what part of the piece would you change / add to and why? why do you think the melody goes in that direction?
I have my students do written listening assignments with HOT questions. That’s really big now.
Study essential questions. There is a book out now devoted solely to this topic. Wiggins and McTighe. Post questions in your room.
