Following the theory there is more thinking and learning in asking questions than in answering questions, Active Questioning: Questioning Still Makes the Difference presents reproducible examples of 5 kinds of questions. The goal of the book is to teach students how to ask differentiated questions about content.
Modifying questions is an instructional strategy that differentiates the process in Differentiated Instruction. Differentiated questions can be used with any content and any learning style. The application of differentiated questions carries over to making good decisions, communicating effectively, and solving problems creatively.
