"Thinking Through Quality Questioning goes beyond improvement of teacher practice to provide tools teachers can use to support students in becoming active, responsible learners through a reciprocal process of questioning, discussion, and response." -- Debbie Brooks, Principal
"Reading this book gave me an `a-ha' moment on almost every other page. I have been using inquiry in my classroom for many years, and I even teach a class to other teachers about using questioning, but this book gave me more practical, research-based techniques to enhance the instruction I am giving. I have not seen a book that addresses using questioning so thoroughly, and gives such simple ideas for implementing the ideas." -- Patricia Herr, Elementary School Teacher, Virginia
"A practical guide to help classroom teachers across America enrich instruction with quality classroom questions. The authors provide good examples of probing questions that will engage the student. I have read and reviewed thousands of NAEP questions, in thirteen years as the governing board's executive director, looking for just such `thinking questions' as are bundled up in this book into a neat package for teachers." -- Roy Truby, Former Executive Director of the National Assessment Governing Board
"The skilful use of questioning in a classroom is vital to student engagement and learning. A teacher's use of questions to promote thinking and engagement results in a classroom in which students are involved in deep conceptual learning. The authors fully explore this important topic." -- Charlotte Danielson, Educational Consultant
"Any educator who believes that our students MUST be able to think deeply in order to flourish in our world - today and in the future - will not be able to put this book down! Page after page challenges our own thinking while simultaneously offering a blueprint for developing students' higher order thinking skills."-- Sally Piepenbrink, School Improvement Specialist
"The authors present a solid framework and then take readers to increasing specificity about what good questioning is and how to use it in the classroom. Clear examples and useful tools are provided throughout to guide use by individual teachers or by teams of teachers in a school." -- Robert E. Blum, Director, Center for School and District Improvement
"Without Quality Questioning, we won't discover all of the good practices we need as teachers of children and youth or as teachers of future teachers. You can find help and answers in Quality Questioning." -- Mark Musick, President
"Walsh and Sattes's thoughtful scholarship takes shape here as an invaluable, professional-development resource for teachers. Quality Questioning provides techniques and strategies that have the power to enrich the learning process in America's classrooms and increase student achievement." -- Gaston Caperton, Former Governor of West Virginia
