The adept use of questioning has the power to enhance students’ critical thinking skills and learning. With the right strategies in place, K-12 teachers can visualize the best way to help students expand their knowledge. In Raising the Rigor: Effective Questioning Strategies for the Classroom, Eileen Depka shares instructional practices and tools that teachers can use to respond to students’ diverse needs as they develop 21st century skills. Through sample situations, templates and suggested strategies, Depka illustrates how effective question design, specifically with guidance from Norman Webb’s Depth of Knowledge framework and Benjamin Bloom’s taxonomy, promotes college and career readiness and deepens student engagement. When teachers design effective questions, they set the stage for quality discussions that engage and inspire students. Promoting higher-order thinking skills not only actively engages students’ minds but supports a deeper, more meaningful level of understanding.  

With this book, K-12 teachers will:

  • Create rigorous standards-based questions and tasks

  • Release responsibility gradually to allow students to ask deep questions

  • Differentiate student assignments and effective assessments

  • Learn student engagement indicators

  • Establish a classroom culture that creates trust and promotes inquiry
