Abstract

This capstone presents a unit for teaching high school students to generate questions independently using Bloom's Taxonomy. The unit, formulated by the method of backwards design, scaffolds instruction in questioning skills using question stems, based on Alison King's Reciprocal Questioning, and signal words. Through the course of the unit, the teacher models questioning behavior and explicitly teaches students the levels of Bloom's Taxonomy. The students then use the taxonomy to create a rubric, used by both the teacher and students to asses the level of questions asked, and practice generating questions based on literature to use in small group discussion.
