John T. Spencer: 10 Ways to Help Students Ask Better Questions

“However, the deeper questions didn’t happen in a vacuum.  Students have spent hours learning the art of questioning.  Here are ten things I’ve done in class to encourage students to ask better questions:

  1. Question Everything: It’s become a mantra in our class and it extends all the way to me.  As long as a question is respectful, I want students to question their world.  This applies to analyzing mathematical processes, thinking through social issues, making sense out of a text or analyzing the natural world for cause and effect.  Pretty much every lesson we do includes students asking questions to me, to one another or to themselves – and the boldest of students will ask questions of the world. “

“As many school administrators are enjoying their summer break, we all tend to think of ways that we can make our school better in the upcoming year. Often, I point school principals and district leaders to a powerful post by Will Richardson that helps us point the finger right at ourselves when we are looking to push our school ahead. Richardson states:

‘Meaningful change ain’t gonna happen for our kids if we’re not willing to invest in it for ourselves first. At the heart, it’s not about schools . . . it’s about us.'”
