Finally, a resource to help teachers develop and ask questions that encourage children to think, imagine, and generate ideas! Strasser and Bresson show how to build on what children know by asking questions that support rather than derail their play and exploration. This gem of a book should be in every classroom.
―Beth Graue, Sorenson Professor of Early Childhood Education, University of Wisconsin-Madison
Listening, questioning, and learning are essential ingredients to good decision making. This contribution by Strasser and Bresson will help ensure that educators won’t wait until children are in high school before asking them high-level, thought-provoking questions.

Questions are powerful tools, especially in the classroom. Asking rich, thoughtful questions can spark young children’s natural curiosity and illuminate a whole new world of possibility and insight. But what are “big” questions, and how do they encourage children to think deeply? With this intentional approach―rooted in Bloom’s Taxonomy―teachers working with children ages 3 through 6 will discover how to meet children at their individual developmental levels and stretch their thinking. Featuring contributions from respected names in the field, this book:
- Offers a foundation for using high-level questions in preschool and kindergarten interest areas
- Provides tips for getting started and examples of questions at each of the six levels of questioning
- Explores the use of high-level questions during daily classroom routines and in a variety of contexts
- Recommends picture books that support the use of high-level questions
- Includes an extensive resource section for teachers and families
With the guidance in this book as a cornerstone in your day-to-day teaching practices, learn how to be more intentional in your teaching, scaffold children’s learning, and promote deeper understanding.
