An effective way to develop your EAL learners questioning is to use this classroom strategy.
Rather than always asking EAL learners questions you could give them the answers instead and they have to think of the questions.
This has a number of advantages that include:
- You have given them the content so they might be filling in gaps with prior knowledge that they may not have.
- They are practising formulating questions and therefore developing the language of questionning.
- By working with others they might hear higher order questions which is a good skills for all learners.
