This is highlighting the fact that as a teacher I should always allow students to ask questions regardless of the situation.

At an early age, students need to be familiar with the questioning techniques while reading.

Teachers will find this model helpful in teaching reading by using a favorite storybook of his/her choice.
This presentation alerts me to the fact that children are uniquely inquisitive. As an educator, we should not shun our students when they ask a wide range of questions. We should tap into that energy and use it to enhance their learning abilities. I thoroughly enjoyed this video and would recommend it to teachers. The information it reveals is food for thought.
Sometimes when we find children who are extremely inquisitive, we tend to ignore their questions or give them an incorrect answer. However, this article brings home the point that many of our great geniuses were very curious or inquisitive. This is an advantage. We should develop this trait through reading to our students.
