During this course, educators will learn how to make one simple change- teach their students to ask their own questions.The skill of question formulation can make learning possible for all types of learners. Research shows that learning to ask questions leads to improved learning outcomes, greater student engagement, positive relationships between student and teacher, new avenues for dialogue and inquiry, and more ownership of the learning process. We will explore not only why this should be done, but how to effectively incorporate the Question Formulation Technique developed at the Right Question Institute. The QFT is also a powerful tool that addresses the urgent need to improve education for students in struggling schools as well as improving education for those who already excel at answering questions, but not necessarily asking them. Utilizing these strategies will give us hope and strength for moving forward in the hard work of making education work best for all students.
