  1. Review and discuss concepts and learning from Session One;
  2. Report on their experiences during the interim period between sessions in trying out questioning strategies;
  3. Discuss the relationship of questioning strategies to neural branching and brain research;
  4. Design new questioning strategies using a common stimulus; and
  5. Suggest ways for expanding the use of questioning strategies.
