Teaching Channel has published a blog series that showcases teachers across the United States who use the Question Formulation Technique (QFT).
The series features educators from the lower-elementary grades through community college. It includes insights from science, history, English, library, and math teachers.
It’s part of the professional learning website’s “Tchers’ Voice” corner, where educators share advice with colleagues. The site, which attracts more than 1.4 million page views per month, seeks “to create an environment where teachers can watch, share, and learn new techniques to help every student grow.”
The QFT blog series features seven posts:
