A Simple Strategy for Teaching Students How to Think

We believe that knowing how to ask questions is a foundational skill that is essential for all learning. When teachers use our Question Formulation Technique™ (QFT™), students learn to ask their own questions. They use a rigorous process for producing their own questions, improving their questions and strategizing on how to use their questions.

When students are asking their own questions, they:

  • Are more engaged in their learning,
  • Take more ownership of their learning,
  • Learn more.

Students also describe a difference in how they feel:

  • More confident,
  • More excited about learning,
  • Smarter.

Teachers in all subject areas and all grade levels value the simplicity of the QFT design. It can be easily learned, taught and implemented in the classroom. Teachers:

  • Are excited and energized by student participation,
  • Feel as if their job changes from ‘pulling teeth’ to elicit student responses to managing the surge of energy in the classroom,

Teachers who use the QFT find that it lightens their load and leads to better learning outcomes as students:

  • Are exposed to a range of perspectives,
  • Work collaboratively,
  • Demonstrate more self-regulation and self-discipline,
  • Apply their question-asking skills beyond the classroom.
