About this title


Which is the best question to ask in any class? Should you use a name in a question? How can you encourage non-writers to passionately write using questions? What is a question widow, and how might you avoid them?

Questions can be the most influential aspect of teaching, yet they become tacit incredibly quickly. By exploring the power and innate structure of questions, the ideas in this book hope to reignite your interest in questions, make you consider your existing habits, and how you might refine them. It explores the powerful use (and misuse) of questions in the modern classroom, how to untap their true potential, and how to use questions to really get the students thinking. Filled with practical tips, reflective thoughts and a multitude of ideas to try out in your own class, this book aims to make your teaching easier, more exciting and your students enthusiastic and eager to learn.

Stephen is a bestselling author and award-winning teacher, passionate about making a difference in the classroom through innovation, participation and reflection. He has spoken at many Educational Conferences, and writes regularly online at He can be found on Twitter as @mrlockyer.
