I create a classroom where questions are expected and praised. I talk to kids about the “Ms. Hagan’s Levels of Learning.” I ask kids to push themselves to the next level of learning and to always ask questions. The levels are:
Opener: paying attention and listening politely to others
Processor: thinking and taking in content material
Clarifier: asking questions to take ownership of material
Wonderer: asking questions of yourself and of the teacher – “I wonder if …” or “What happens if …”
Scholar: pushing yourself to go above and beyond what we talk about in class.
