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.
[The QFT] makes me feel like I’m in control of my learning.
Students were more engaged than ever. They came back the next day excited about conversations they are having with other people about the election. They are more motivated to vote and feeling more confident about their ability to understand what’s going on and to have a say in the elections.
As the title of this book indicates, Dan Rothstein and Luz Santana believe that education can be transformed if students, rather than teachers, assume responsibility for posing questions. This idea may sound simple, but it is both complex and radical: complex, in that formulating good, generative questions, and being prepared to work toward satisfactory answers, is hardly a simple undertaking; and radical, in the sense that an apparently easy move can bring about a Copernican revolution in the atmosphere of the classroom and the dynamics of learning. The authors modestly quote physicist Niels Bohr who once said, ‘An expert is someone who has made all possible mistakes in a field and there are no more to be made.’ In reading this powerful work, I was reminded of what Albert Einstein said, when he learned of Jean Piaget’s pioneering questioning of young children: ‘so simple only a genius could have thought of it.’
I do think that the QFT process did open up students to be inquisitive, reflective thinkers, and these characteristics permeated into how students approached learning in any content area or aspect of school.
