Small Change, Big Impact **WEEKLY TOP TIP**

This is a simple but effective questioning tool to make a big difference in pupils understanding and progression.

You will need

Questions to ask…

 

How it works:

Ask yourself: What is the difference between:

“Stephen…what is the difference between X and Y?”

AND

What is the difference between X and Y? ……………. Stephen

AND

“What is the difference between X and Y? (Pause for 5 seconds). Discuss in your pairs for 30 seconds.” “Stephen what did Michael suggest? Do you agree?”

 

Depth to questioning is vital. Giving pupils time to gather an answer or evaluate their peers answer can help pupils develop a greater understanding of a topic.

It links slightly to the PPPB-Pose, Pause, Pounce, Bounce! idea shared previously. Have a look! And have a go!
