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.
I think it helps us build higher level questions. When we go over our questions and try to make them better, it helps us think. The questions help us dig deeper and go beyond basic facts and we develop questions that give us more than yes or no answers.
Today I learned how to alter and improve my research question. This has already helped my research question become more manageable and fit within the requirement of the project better. This helped me zero in and pinpoint which section of my topic I am truly interested in.
Why do you think we ask questions? So we can be curious about what we are learning and want to know more.
Just the act of brainstorming questions led to more questions. It really helped me understand not only what I didn’t know about the subject, but also what I wanted to know.
I thought of new questions I didn’t realize I was curious about once I started brainstorming all the options.
