I know I have been guilty in the past of not asking my students enough higher order thinking questions. If I don’t make a conscious effort to ask open ended questions, I find myself asking a lot of yes or no questions, or questions that have only one right answer. I really wanted to focus on making sure I am asking questions to help my students improve their critical thinking and problem solving skills.
I created a set of question cards that I will be using every morning during our morning meeting.
This set includes 100 questions that will get your students thinking critically, and talking.
None of the questions have “one right answer” and none of them can be answered with just a simple “yes” or “no.”
These questions will lead to rich discussions, and help to improve oral language.
If you’d like to check out these cards (two sets available), just click on either of the pictures below to head on over to my Teachers Pay Teachers Store.
What are your favorite ways to improve critical thinking with your students?
