APT session titled "Effective Questioning in Science" on June 28, 2014

Dear Member,

This month’s session will be conducted by Ms. Zahraa Abdul Quadeer Khan and Ms. Sumaira Waqar on “Effective Questioning in Science”.

Teachers use questions in the classroom to strengthen students’ analytical thinking and help students construct scientific knowledge. Through effective questioning techniques, teachers are able to provide pupils to arouse students’ curiosity, stimulate their imagination, and motivate them to seek out new knowledge. This workshop is designed to help teachers guide their students towards exploring and making everyday connections between science and the outside world through fun, hands-on activities. The activities and discussions in the workshop will provide opportunities to teachers to understand and learn about the importance of effective questioning.
