Avoid asking general questions at the outset, such as, "How do you feel the lesson went?" or "What, in your opinion, made the lesson most effective?"
Avoid beginning a question with
"Why did you do that?" ”Why didn't you do that?” "Why don't you..."
Use open words to begin queries, such as:
- "What impact did....?"
- How did you do that?
- How could you?
- What was the purpose of...?" What else could you possibly do to...?
- "Explain to me what..."
- "Can you tell me what...?"
Ask questions that focus on learning:
What was the lesson's main takeaway for (child's name)?
- What factors supported this group best?
- What else can you do to support and extend this group?
