Questions for checking for understanding
Part of Lesson Plan: Parenting Styles
Activity Overview / Details
The following are questions to ask the students to check for understanding throughout the lesson. I generally use the pair-share/share out method. I have also found these questions work well for using whole group white boards to check for understading. In addition, these questions may be used as a quick assessment for the need to re-teach at the end of the lesson.
· Which parenting style emphasizes obedience?
· Which parenting style gives children more autonomy than parents?
· Which parenting style allows child input, but parents have the final say?
· If a child has an authoritarian parent, what are some of the behaviors that they might exhibit?
· If a student has an authoritative/ democratic parent, what are some of the behaviors that they might display in school?
· Which parenting style is most likely to produce insecure and unorganized children?
· Which parenting style do you think would best fit you as a parent and why?
