50 Questions To Help Students Think About What They Think

50 Questions To Help Students Think About What They Think | Education | Scoop.it

Using the right questions creates powerful, sometimes multiple answers and discussions. Aristotle said that he asked questions in response to other people’s views, while Socrates focused on disciplined questioning to get to the truth of the matter.

It is so important to ask the right questions - those that stimulate thinking, discussion and further investigation

Ask the right questions and help yourself to think

Jan MacWatters's curator insight, July 7, 2014 7:30 AM

I was always taught that you have to ask the right question to get the right answer...and teaching students to think about developing and pursuing questions is an important part of the process.

Curate and Create Learning Resources


If we want to have students seek out other information from sources other than the teacher, then we must make sure those resources are available. Many teachers using the flipped classroom approach already have created or found these kinds of resources. However, think broadly about the word resource.


People are resources, texts are resources, and community organizations are resources -- to name just a few categories. We have to be comfortable not always knowing the answer, and instead suggesting we find the answer together through the vast amount of learning resources that we have at our disposal.


Try curating these resources before, during, and after a unit. Work with students as well to create a culture where the answers are everywhere.

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's curator insight, May 12, 7:02 AM

Many of today's young children are overbooked. Sadly some have little access to these resources or initiatives.

Kym Reinstadler, SCN Feature Writer's curator insight, May 12, 11:01 AM

I’ve known kids whose calendars were as tightly scheduled as CEOs of major companies. It’s when the school dismissal bell rings at 3 p.m. that the real “meat” of their day begins! There’s something sad about parents having to monitor the work/life balance of their tweens, as well as themselves. Yet, statistics show that those after-school “enrichment” activities -- and the character-fortifying lessons learned from them -- correspond to the child’s achievement in later life. Not to mention that kids who don’t have planned, supervised activities from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. are more likely to get hurt or in trouble. Some “non-scheduled” time for contemplation and reflection -- or watching reruns of the Andy Griffith Show -- are important at any age. Yet, it’s clear that the benefits of extracurriculars eclipse the drawbacks.

RebeccaMoore's curator insight, May 12, 4:57 PM
