Inquiry-Based Teaching: Asking Effective Questions
Rating

Sheila Kosoff joins fellow teachers, Adam Grumbach, Avram Barlowe and Terry Weber to reflect upon class discussion around a given text and how questioning facilitates a rigorous discussion. Avram talks about the importance of asking open-ended questions that invite multiple interpretations. Terry adds that effective questions sometimes allow students to explore the meaning of different words and notes that Sheila's comments encourage students to consider these multiple meanings. The group discusses how they determine whether or not they let students discover things themselves or draw their attention to specific ideas and consider how effective questioning helps students develop papers because they are better able to engage with the text. Out of this discussion, three components of effective questions are identified: askiing open-ended questions, inviting different interpretations and using questions to focus the debate.

Inquiry-Based Teaching: Discussing Literature
Rating

Students at Urban Academy High School share how they feel respected and valued at school. Sheila Kosoff, English teacher, talks about how she uses the inquiry approach to foster this culture of respect in which student voice is valued. Students are shown discussing Nabokay's Lolita. Sheila asks her class questions using specific passages from the text and guides the discussion by inviting student responses, making connections, and respecting different voices. Sheila says that teachers need to over-prepare when using the inquiry approach and be patient when soliciting responses from their students. As the discussion progresses, students cite evidence from the text, building arguments and expressing their opinions on the text. Sheila has students read passages from the text, reread, bring up questions, and form opinions. Sheila then talks about how she uses discussions to help prepare her students for writing.

This unit is centered around an anchor text that may be common among content area teachers in a high school setting. Although this unit may be incorporated into any high-school English class, it is aligned with Common Core standards for 9-10. This unit will primarily focus on informational and argumentative texts, and can be used to incorporate more informational texts (as directed by the Common Core) into English classrooms at the high school level. This unit is best suited to a collaborative model of development in which ELA and content area teachers share an anchor text (The Universal Declaration of Human Rights) and communicate about how to connect diverse skills to common texts and essential questions.
