Using QFT with Special Student Populations Modifications for English Language Learners, Specific Learning Disabilities, & Speech and Language Impairment QFT for some might be too confusing
It feels like this without scaffolding! Modifications BEFORE introducing the QFT Create an anchor chart or word bank with students Watch Carnac, the Magnificent with students Then practice asking questions when given only the answer Playing Q & A Bee ala Carnac! Brainstorm Words That Begin Questions
Designing the Question Focus Use or pair images/visuals or videos Build Background Knowledge in preparation Incorporate pop culture for engagement Producing Questions & Learning the 4 Rules
Dont correct for grammar or spelling Explicitly teach & break down the 4 rules Take time defining judge Model the QFT process Let Ss generate questions individually before sharing out Explore online tools (i.e. Google docs.)
Open vs. Closed Questions Model Conversations Discuss purpose of each type Discuss How or why as open
Discuss who, where, when as closed Write new questions directly under old Analyze real world examples Prioritizing Voting via Post-it notes or online platforms can be an engaging, effective way to prioritize questions via padlet.com or dotstorming.com Working in Groups
Assign Roles to hold all members accountable Strategically assign note-taker Try Whole Class prior to small groups Let teacher act as scribe Allow individual work first if necessary
Preview group work expectations Time Allow for Wait Time Budget extra time for each step Introduce QFT steps over a few days Language Skills Allow for Word Banks Allow for question formulation in Native Language (L1)
Allow others in the group to translate Working 1:1 with Students Examples of 1:1 with Google docs. QFT with Photo QFOCUS And it doesnt always work well 1:1 QFT with #NaturalDisasters QFT teachers role in school violence QFT before and after reading QFT with scaffolding steps

A conceptual scheme is the interrelationship between concepts and constructs. An operational definition defines a variable in terms of specific measurement and testing criteria. An example of an operational definition is provided in Slide 2-14. A variable is used as...
If the ammeter has a finite resistance—which is the case for any real meter—then its presence in a circuit alters the current it is intended to measure. Thus, an ideal ammeter would have zero resistance. Real ammeters, however, give accurate...
Atmospheric deposition simulated using the Chesapeake Bay Airshed Model (a combination of a regression model of wet deposition and a continental-scale air quality model of North America called the CMAQ for estimates of dry deposition).
The responsibility repository is implemented using AndroMDA, a platform that simplifies working with UML models and also increments the extensibility and portability of our tool. Another difference is that the implemented work only supports 3-Layer as output. And last, the...
