Questioning: the Deep Dive

Want to get your students thinking critically and deeply with ease? 

The secret lies in excellent questioning, and this course reveals that secret!

I will teach you step-by-step how to craft questions that improve student achievement, build relationships, and deepen thinking exponentially.
Have you ever had students staring blankly back at you after you ask a question?
Do you ever feel like the teacher in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off? Anyone? Anyone?

Do you ever feel like crickets have taken over your classroom?

Without developing great questioning technique, you’ll never feel like you’re the teacher you always wanted to be, and your students will never feel the pride they could feel when they give a thoughtful answer to a wonderful question.


I was exactly where you are. I was using the questions that came with my curriculum, expecting them to be impactful. After all, the school district paid good money for this textbook. Surely the included questions were the right ones to ask.   

Yet, day after day, I’d sit at my desk after school planning for the next day, and thinking with dread about how painful class discussion could be.   

I wanted a lively class.   

I wanted discussion that built classroom community.   

I wanted to feel like I had become the teacher I always intended to be.

  I wanted powerful instruction, and I knew the answer was in the questions.  

Finally, I tossed the textbook questions aside and became a student of questions.   

I read the research, and I turned my class into an unsupervised scientific experiment on questioning.    For a decade, I refined the techniques I was practicing. Eventually, questioning became my superpower, rather than my super stressor. 

I’ve taken all I’ve learned and put it in this course that will teach you to be an expert questioner. You are just a few hours away from being one of the best teachers in the country.
