“As a participation structure, QFT is genius. One reason I like QFT is that it gives students an opportunity to show different ways to be smart in my class. Since I teach math, students with strong procedural fluency are sometimes assigned status by peers and labeled as smart. QFT helps address that.”
“One educator asks a question that we hear often at the Right Question Institute: ‘at the end of the day what types of math questions get answered and what math actually gets learned? Are [students]…able to generate questions about a specific area of math that actually allows the student to learn – math?’ ”
