"Extremely practical in its examples and in its readability. The authors' style is very readable and friendly. . . I particularly like the questions for reflection at the end of each chapter and the quotes from teachers in the field." Susan Hudson, School Improvement Services Nashville, TN "Reading this book gave me an 'a-ha' moment on almost every other page. I have been using inquiry in my classroom for many years, and I even teach a class to other teachers about using questioning, but this book gave me more practical, research-based techniques to enhance the instruction I am giving. I have not seen a book that addresses using questioning so thoroughly, and gives such simple ideas for implementing the ideas." Patricia Herr, Elementary School Teacher, Virginia Author, Inquiry-Based Learning Using Everyday Objects Use effective questions to advance student thinking, learning, and achievement! Teachers question their students to advance thinking and learning. But what if they're asking the wrong questions? In Quality Questioning , authors Jackie Walsh and Beth Sattes provide an in-depth look at how quality questions can transform classrooms. Developers of the QUILT framework, Walsh and Sattes show that teachers already know how to ask effective questions, but sometimes find it difficult to change their questioning behaviors. Based on two decades of research on teacher effectiveness, they offer strategies that engage all students in the teacher's questions and prompt students to generate their own questions. In turn, these superior questions will enrich students, their school's learning community, and any instructor's own professional development. Quality Questioning includes: A complete framework for preparing questions, presenting questions, prompting student responses, processing student responses, teaching students to generate questions, and reflecting on questioning practice Checklists for classroom applications Reproducibles, rubrics, resources, evaluation tools, and more

Jackie Acree Walsh is a co-developer�with Beth Dankert Sattes of�Questioning and Understanding to Improve Learning and Thinking (QUILT), a nationally validated professional development program on effective questioning. They are also co-authors of Inside School Improvement (2000) and co-presenters of the Video Journal in Education series Questioning to Stimulate Thinking (1999). These two former classroom teachers have trained hundreds of administrators and teachers across the nation in effective questioning. Their other joint ventures have focused on creating effective professional development for educators, sharing leadership for continuous school improvement, and creating a culture for high-performance learning communities. A recent example of their work is the design and delivery of professional development for school improvement specialists-consultants or staff who work to develop the capacity of schools to improve achievement for all students. They have also developed professional development modules on improving school culture (for the Southern Regional Education Board) and leading learning communities (for the Alabama Leadership Academy).� Walsh holds a bachelors degree in political science from Duke University, a masters degree in teaching (MAT) from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and a PhD in education administration and supervision from the University of Alabama. Both Walsh and Sattes have served as faculty for the National Staff Development Councils Academy.
