Question: Why should teachers prepare FAQ’s (frequently asked questions) ahead of time? 

Answer: Prepare FAQ’s (questions that students in the past have asked about the course content) ahead of time before teaching the lesson. These FAQ’s can be used at various times during the lesson or when summarizing the course content. They can be added to. They should make student questioning a more comfortable experience, encouraging them to be less fearful of asking questions.

 Comment: I think it’s a great idea. Students are familiar with FAQ’s from using computers and software. RayS.
