Chalk Talk: The Power of Questions
Students are asked questions all the time in school. How a teacher asks a child about a problem on the board can help or hurt that child in their learning. The same applies at home. Don’t be afraid to ask your student questions at home. However, be simple and engaging with your questions. Ask what about their day made it the way it was. Children want their parents to be interested in their activities. We know children and teens don’t like to feel they are being bombarded, as if someone is trying to find out if they did something wrong. For that reason, students may seem as if school is the last thing they want to talk about. Children and teens may be guarded. Why are mom and dad asking so many questions??? Understand they may not want to talk. Questions about actual school work can wait until homework time or getting ready for bed. By asking about their friends, who they sat with at lunch, who they hung out with after school, during recess or study hall, parents can show their children their interest without scaring them into silence. The ‘power of questions’ comes from HOW you ask them.
