About this event

Children sure can ask a lot of questions! And inquiries start with questions… But how do we find good ones? And how do we help our students to generate and improve their questions?

In this webinar, we will explore the kinds of questions children (and adolescents) ask and explain how we can best respond to support their development of ideas about science. We will unpack several strategies to facilitate children’s questions in ways that enable student-led inquiry and cultivate a questioning classroom.
