The skill of question asking is far too rarely deliberately taught in school. We have worked with and learned from educators to develop a teaching strategy, the Question Formulation Technique (QFT), which provides a simple yet powerful way to teach students how to formulate, work with, and use their own questions.
Just when you think you know all you need to know, you ask another question and discover how much more there is to learn.
I thought of new questions I didn’t realize I was curious about once I started brainstorming all the options.
The way it made me feel was smart because I was asking good questions and giving good answers.
Why do you think we ask questions? So we can be curious about what we are learning and want to know more.
I have seen students that are on IEPs or been receiving Title 1 support excel in the classroom when participating in the QFT. I would have never discovered what was going on in their brain if we didn’t allow for this opportunity.
