It can be hard to find education books where the majority of the content can be utilised in practical PE. With this book it is not the case, each chapter has a clear explanation of the research behind the idea, a practical idea, a worked example (with handy QR codes) and a template for use to plan your own implementation of the strategies. This makes it relevant and impactful.
*Miss A Smyth, Trust Wide Subject Lead for Physical Education, David Ross Education Trust*

Many people think they know all about questioning just by the high volume that they ask each day without really knowing about the process.
*Kaye MacIver, Regional Director of Learning, Vietnam and Thailand, International Schools Partnership Limited*

A no-nonsense approach to teaching and to effective questioning. This book is not just for teachers. Trainees, NQTs, Cover supervisors and LSAs will find Ross's methods invaluable on their day-to-day job. Everyone has a lot to win and learn from this.
*Andrea Ramalhete, former cover supervisor and current trainee teacher*

Ross cuts through the noise of an extensive evidence base to provide yet another compelling and practicable guide to one of the most powerful tools at a teacher’s disposal – a must-read for any teacher.
*Dr Martin Rigby, Deputy Principal, Runshaw College*

All teachers must read this book. Questioning should be a major tool in our teaching toolkit and this book is full of strategies to increase both hard thinking and student engagement.
*Maria Bateson, KS5 Science Lead, The Charter School East Dulwich*

Great professional development resource for new educators and experienced educators alike. This guide to questioning explores the how and the why as well as providing clear worked models, examples, and templates... An easy read from start to finish and chapters of interest can easily be visited, an important factor for busy educators.
*Kelly Nicholson, Curriculum Manager and Advanced Teaching Practitioner in Further Education*

‘I’m just finishing my second year ECT and I wish I had this book at the beginning of my teacher training journey. The way that it explains not only how but why has given me a whole new appreciation for getting the most out of my students using these questioning techniques. As I take over lead of my subject I will be embedding many of these ideas into my lessons going forward next year... Another brilliant addition to my Teacher Toolkit library!’
*Trish Duncan, Lead of Careers and Business, Highworth Warneford School Swindon*

Absolutely delighted with this book... Clear, concise and easy to read as ever. We will be using this as our questioning 'bible' moving forward.

This inspirational book provides a practical and grounded approach to incorporating evidence-based strategies for refining questioning, identifying knowledge gaps, and developing improved retention and recall of knowledge in the classroom.

Another excellent book from Ross. This fantastic guide to questioning is steeped in theory, giving practical and readily useable questioning technics to ensure effective classroom practice.
*Mrs Jane Dunnett, Deputy Headteacher, The Robert Napier School*

Ross has added yet another must-read for teachers to further enhance one of the most important, and most taken for granted strategies in the teacher toolkit - questioning. This book provides a concise analysis of the evidence base before taking the reader through a methodical approach to enable them to trial questioning techniques in the classroom with ease.
*Jamie Watkinson, Assistant Principal at John Leggott College*

There are plenty of good ideas that can be used directly in the classroom. Equally helpful is the structure provided in the book to help support each technique.
*Warren Rodricks, Head of Assessment at the Harrodian School*

This book - with its illustrations and worked examples - will allow teachers to consider these ideas; plan which students, classes and lessons or topics will suit questioning styles best and hopefully ensure that all students feel involved in the thinking and knowledge development which brings learning to life.
*Rebecca Moody, Assistant SENCO and English teacher, The Holmesdale School*

This resource is an essential guide to asking questions in any and every context! Whether as a teacher, lecturer, assessor, or even a (sports) coach, Ross has written a go-to resource to make the process of questioning more effective and impactful.
*Jon Wyse, Elite Sport Manager at Loughborough College*

It is refreshing to be offered solutions by an expert who 'just gets it'... This book will help to embed a staunch questioning culture, refine practice, increase challenge, reduce threat and strengthen pupil understanding. Every educator should own a copy of this book.
*Sarah Lewtas, primary teacher at Oak Trees MAT*

Underpinned by strong research and practical examples from the EYFS classroom upwards, allow a master educator to help you reframe your questioning. Feeling the different vibe across my class already!
*Rosemary Arnold-Knights, supply teacher at Engage Education*

Once again Ross McGill has produced an excellent informative and educational book that will be of use across the profession from new teachers to people like myself who've been in education for many, many years.
*Andrea Rason, English, Maths and ICT teacher at The Sheffield College*

I would recommend this handbook to all teachers; regardless of experience, there are tweaks you will immediately make to your practice that will increase your ability to use questions to efficiently check for and deepen understanding. I cannot wait to plan professional development for our teachers using the “bringing it all together” section, of course!
