Sally Godinho and Jeni Wilson explore the art of questioning in Out of the Question: Guiding Students to a Deeper Understanding of What They See, Read, Hear, and Do which is compactly presented in a flipbook format. This attractively presented and succinct resource contains a combination of theory about questioning and classroom activities to teach questioning to students. The flipbook is divided into seven sections that address the following topics: why ask questions, questions in the classroom, deeper thinking questions, emotional response questions, creative thinking questions, developing questioning skills, and assessing questioning. Frameworks for questioning, such as Blooms' Taxonomy, are presented in tabular form for easy reference. Godinho and Wilson provide a variety of examples of different types and styles of questioning. For instance, the divergent thinking questioning model has seven question types and examples for each of the seven question types are given. Activities for teachers to use in the classroom are clearly colour-coded in blue tables and "how to" tips for teachers are coded in green. Also included in the flip book are two reproducible masters to assess student questioning skills as well as a self-assessment checklist for teachers about their own questioning skills in the classroom.
