Weekly Digest #85: Adjunct Questions
We recently featured a blog post on recent research showing that prequestions can be useful for learning from video lectures. However, research on adjunct questions is not new. Much of this research builds on work that was pioneered by Rothkopf in the late 1960s. Today, we provide several resources related to adjunct questions, including some background research and ideas for classroom implementation. (Special thanks to Paul Kirschner @P_A_Kirschner for the idea!)
1) The Effect of Adjunct Learning on Prose Learning by Christiaan Hamaker
We start with a review of the research on adjunct questions. This review paper is a bit older, but is excellent for the review of the wealth of research inspired by Rothkopf's work.
3) Moving Forward, Looking Back - Asking Adjunct Questions in Class by Erin at Worchester Polytechnic Institute @WPI
In this article, practical tips are provided for how to use adjunct questions both in the classroom during a lesson, as well as in take-home assignments.
In this podcast, Jon Bergmann interviews Steve Griffiths about the way he uses prequestions in his flipped classrooms.
