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.
“This is the best, most useful training in 22 years of teaching!”
For me, their questions and the young man’s comment made my day. I wanted the students to own the class. I wanted them to have a say in what we learn and how we learn it. After using the QFT just one time, I was already noticing a change in the engagement of my students.
Their level of engagement in the activity and each other’s ideas was not only exhilarating, but literally heart-warming.
I’d also enjoy seeing more teachers take a page out of the Right Question Institute and help students learn to formulate great questions.
The QFT helped refine questions I did not think could be serious into strong questions that could lead to better advance my research.
