1. 15/09/17 Year 9 Social In this lesson I implemented questioning at different stages


Studies, Social Responsibility throughout the lesson. At the beginning of the lesson I
asked low-level factual questions to check students'
understanding of key concepts taught in a previous lesson.

been taught I asked high-level questions to elicit higher
order thinking from students. This involved asking high-
level questions about the relation of social responsibility to
the Spanish Influenza.

Studies, Women's Rights in the lesson. The questions I asked were high-level questions
Iran that were intended to guide new learning about women's
rights in Iran. The questions were pre-planned open-ended
questions. For example, "What are your thoughts on
whether foreign countries should involve themselves in
the conflicts of another country? Such as the issue in
Iran.” I implemented various questioning techniques
during this questioning session to increase the quality of
students' answers, including increasing my wait-time and
probing.
