Featured Student Engagement Strategy:

Questioning: A Simple Way to Engage with Material

With a partner or in groups, have students develop a list of questions about the material (reading, film, lecture, etc.). For additional complexity, you could assign each group a certain level of question based on Bloom’s taxonomy—for example, level one would be recall questions (define, identify) and level two would be concept questions (predict, categorize), and so on.

After students have compiled their questions, groups will take turns asking their questions for the other groups to answer so that students are making sense of and engaging with the material.
