Danielson’s Framework for Teaching Domain 3
The Danielson Framework for Teaching is a research-based set of components of instruction, aligned to the INTASC standards and grounded in a constructivist view of learning and teaching. The complex activity of teaching is divided into 22 components (and 76 smaller elements) clustered into four domains of teaching responsibility. Component 3b of this framework explicitly focuses on “Using Questioning and Discussion Techniques”.
Bloom’s Taxonomy provides a hierarchical way of thinking about levels of questions.Î¾ This provides a way to craft questions into levels from the most basic, knowledge, to the most cognitively demanding level of creating.
In this article, several suggestions are made to help educators develop the powerful instructional strategy of questioning. Questioning is essential in a problem-solving mathematics classroom. To use questions effectively educators must plan the questions ahead of time and use a variety of question types in order to develop student understanding of mathematics and to foster mathematical discourse.
