The skill of question formulation may be, other than basic literacy, the most important learning skill available to students, employees and citizens. The ability to ask questions greatly enhances learning on all levels and in all subject areas. Students can become more effective, self-directed learners when they are able to produce, improve and strategize on how to use their own questions.
The design of the seminar is both experiential and highly-collaborative. Seminar activities will be presented to maximize peer-to-peer interactions and responsive to a range of learning styles. Participants will have opportunities for individual reflection, small group work, and large group discussions with colleagues across grades and subject areas throughout the two days.
The seminar builds upon the ideas and practices outlined in Make Just One Change: Teach Students to Ask Their Own Questions (Harvard Education Press) by Dan Rothstein and Luz Santana, co-Directors of the Right Question Institute.

What are my parking options?
Free parking will be available next door to the seminar site. Limited, free street parking will also available.
What are my hotel options?
Below is a list of some of the hotels within a five-mile radius of our campus at a variety of price-points; If not renting a car, LA, Santa Monica, and Culver City each have inexpensive, efficient, and safe bus systems that can take you to Wildwood from any of these locations (as well as to all of the sights on the westside of LA/Santa Monica.)
Some hotels, noted below, have been recommended by former workshop participants. For budgeting purposes, the hotel tax in both LA and Santa Monica is 14%, 13% in Marina del Rey, and 12% in Culver City.
