I had intended this to be a three part series, however while trying to write the final post today, I realised I had left out an extremely important piece of the puzzle. In the first post I talked about ‘understanding’, in the second ‘thinking’ and now before looking at under whose influence we may be operating, I realised I need to add in something aboutquestioning.
Then, in thinking I need write a brief note on questioning, I found it to be one of the most horrifically complex aspects of teaching I’ve yet tried to analyse! I can’t say I’m yet at anything that’s usefully conclusive to others, but perhaps the journey will spark a few thoughts in other people’s minds. It’s a necessarily long post, and so I’m splitting it into two parts. I’ll publish part two on Wednesday.
