Join the Right Question Network

Our strategies and resources are the outcomes of decades of work. We continue to learn with practitioners across many fields to develop and simplify two robust processes:

  • The Question Formulation Technique, which helps all individuals learn how to formulate, work with, and use their own questions. Through learning how to ask their own questions, everyone — students, parents, clients, and patients alike — can become more engaged, critical thinkers.
  • The Voice in Decisions Technique, formerly known as the Framework for Accountable Decision Making, which helps individuals learn for themselves how to effectively participate in decisions that affect them. Through learning how to effectively participate in decisions, the decision-making process becomes more democratic and all individuals are equipped with skills to advocate for themselves.

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.

We’re three weeks into the semester, and students are becoming animated and engaged. And they appear to be developing into a community of thinkers. Thank you so much for teaching an effective technique that is so easy to incorporate.

A principal point of big questions is to inspire learners to ask them as well as pursue them. Make Just One Change by Dan Rothstein and Luz Santana puts this agenda front and center. Their subtitle telegraphs the ‘one change’: Teach Students to Ask Their Own Questions.

…it wouldn’t be hard to supercharge the Question Formulation Technique with big questions. Teachers could choose Question Foci with big understandings in mind. Learners could include criteria related to insight, action, ethics, and opportunity as they sort their questions for importance. The main point is this: putting learners in charge of questions.

The QFT helped refine questions I did not think could be serious into strong questions that could lead to better advance my research.
