Event Details

 

Seminar Overview

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.
