What questions shall we ask? - 11 views

    A posting inspired by Patrick Rothfuss - 'It's the questions we can't answer that teach us the most. They teach us how to think. If you give a man an answer all he gains is a little fact but give him a question and he'll look for his own answers. That way, when he finds the answers they'll be precious to him, the harder the question, the harder we hunt, the harder we hunt the more we learn, an impossible question . . .'

  • ask as many questions as you can; do not stop to discuss, judge, or answer any of the questions; write down every question exactly as it was stated; and change any statements into questions.
  • for an open-ended thinking process.
  • The teacher begins this step by introducing definitions of closed- and open-ended questions.
  • “Choose the three questions you most want to explore further.”
  • Students will be asking all the questions. A teacher’s role is simply to facilitate that process. This is a significant change for students as well.
