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’d also enjoy seeing more teachers take a page out of the Right Question Institute and help students learn to formulate great questions.
Yesterday, a student who hadn’t said a word all summer led his group in identifying open and closed questions during the QFT.
The way it made me feel was smart because I was asking good questions and giving good answers.
Just when you think you know all you need to know, you ask another question and discover how much more there is to learn.
Asking questions is a step in creating change.
