    I am carrying out some action research on questioning. As part of this I am looking at meta questioning, but am finding very varied views on what this actually is. What are peoples' ideas on what meta questioning is and any examples?

    They are a waste of student time as, I'm afraid, a lot of action research is a waste of teacher time.

    I don't necessarily disagree on either count, but I still have to carry some out!

    Are you being compelled by SLT?

    Is it questioning which exposes how children think so the skill is in making this visible and then using it to good effect in the classroom ?

    I think you might have to define it as the first step in your research.
    I would say metaquestioning is when the type and method of questioning is made clear - for example all those activities where pupils are using Bloom's taxonomy to create their own questions about the topic they are learning about, in essence deciding what kind of question creates the most learning and information.

    ....which teachers would be modelling of course.
