  • A complete framework for preparing and presenting questions, prompting and processing student responses, teaching students to generate questions, and reflecting on questioning practice
  • Checklists for classroom applications
  • Reproducibles, rubrics, resources, evaluation tools, and more

Editorial Reviews

Susan Hudson
“Extremely practical in its examples and in its readability. The authors’ style is very reader friendly. I particularly like the questions for reflection at the end of each chapter and the quotes from teachers in the field.”
Debbie Brooks
"Thinking Through Quality Questioning goes beyond improvement of teacher practice to provide tools teachers can use to support students in becoming active, responsible learners through a reciprocal process of questioning, discussion, and response."
Patricia Herr
“Reading this book gave me an ‘a-ha’ moment on almost every other page. I have been using inquiry in my classroom for many years, and I even teach a class to other teachers about using questioning, but this book gave me more practical, research-based techniques to enhance the instruction I am giving. I have not seen a book that addresses using questioning so thoroughly, and gives such simple ideas for implementing the ideas.”
Roy Truby
"A practical guide to help classroom teachers across America enrich instruction with quality classroom questions. The authors provide good examples of probing questions that will engage the student. I have read and reviewed thousands of NAEP questions, in thirteen years as the governing board's executive director, looking for just such ‘thinking questions’ as are bundled up in this book into a neat package for teachers."
Charlotte Danielson
"The skilful use of questioning in a classroom is vital to student engagement and learning.A teacher's use of questions to promote thinking and engagementresults ina classroom in which students are involved in deep conceptual learning. The authors fully explore this important topic."
Sally Piepenbrink

"Any educator who believes that our students MUST be able to think deeply in order to flourish in our world - today and in the future - will not be able to put this book down! Page after page challenges our own thinking while simultaneously offering a blueprint for developing students' higher order thinking skills."

Robert E. Blum
"The authors present a solid framework and then take readers to increasing specificity about what good questioning is and how to use it in the classroom. Clear examples and useful tools are provided throughout to guide use by individual teachers or by teams of teachers in a school."
Mark Musick
"Without Quality Questioning, we won't discover all of the good practices we need as teachers of children and youth or as teachers of future teachers. You can find help and answers in Quality Questioning."
Gaston Caperton
"Walsh and Sattes's thoughtful scholarship takes shape here as an invaluable, professional-development resource for teachers. Quality Questioning provides techniques and strategies that have the power to enrich the learning process in America's classrooms and increase student achievement."
