Student-Driven Learning: 50 challenging questions to ask your students

Student-Driven Learning: 50 challenging questions to ask your students | teaching and technology | 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."

Learning to ask good questions is a topic that is often discussed today..but how do we teach students to ask questions, questions that will help them use their higher order thinking skills. This post provides questions you may use with your students to help challenge their thinking. It is split into categories, but many of the questions could be across curriculum areas. The categories listed are:

* Logical questions that focus on mathematics and are split into two categories: collaborative questions for the class and self-reliance questions for individual students.

* Reasoning questions

* Analysis questions

* Connections questions

* Literary questions

* Science and social studies questions.

Below are three of the fifty questions. Click through to the post to find which may work with your students.

* An analysis question - What patterns might lead you to an alternative answer?
* A science and social studies question - What are some of the complexities we should consider?

* A reasoning question  - Why do you think this works? Does it always, why?

Wonderful article that points out some of the challenges of Standards Based Learning as well as ways that instructors can maintain their own unique teaching styles and interests.  Great article for discussion in PD meetings, online learning, and teacher prep courses!

The Common Core require that we get students engaged with reading on a deeper level. This infographic on Close Reading is designed for students and provides suggestions for students to follow: Look for Clues, Ask Questions, Make Your Case, and Prove It. . There is also a version available for teachers that has additional details. Both may be downloaded.

Not too long ago I posted an article that suggested we move from the KWL chart to the KWHL chart...and here is another post that suggests we make it more in-depth by adding the letters A and Q.

What do all these letters stand for?

K - What do I know?

W - What do I want to know?

H - How do I find out?

L - What have I learned?

A - What action will I take?

Q - What new questions do I have?

More in-depth discussions of these new letters are included in the post.

I love this idea - it fits beautifully with the concept of Inquiry-based learning and students assuming ownership of the research process - Yay ACTION! The idea that learning and research are ongoing - and active - is a key element to new learning models. Very exciting!

Why It’s Imperative to Teach Students How to Question

The complete title of this post is Why It's Imperative to Teach Students to Question as the Ultimate Survival Skill? Do you believe this is important? If so, how do you go about teaching your students to ask good questions?

This post begins by looking at the importance of questioning, and notes that many leaders in the high-tech world began with a Montessori education, a system that encourages curiousity from a young age.

The ability to ask insightful questions is something that may be more critical as we move forward. The question is how to we do this. The post notes that many teachers do not feel like they have time for students to ask questions. If this is true what should we do? It suggests that we make it both "safe" and "cool" to ask questions, and also suggests looking at resources available from

The Right Question Institute and from Question Day 2014.


Nancy Jones's curator insight, March 18, 2:52 PM

Risk taking and questioning have always been learning skillls. It just seems that students, and possibly their parents, aren't willing to acknowledge them as the best way to learn. The whole idea of thinking critically and making a "best guess' seem to be unacceptable to some folks. What does that say about the whole quality/gift  of wonder?

"...in practice, curriculum maps are almost always not the “living, breathing” documents experts like Heidi Jacobs Hayes promote. They are instead very dead things—lifeless prisons of content to be covered, and boxes to be highlighted...For a curriculum map—or any planned learning experiences—to be vital—and vitally useful—they must be adaptive and circular rather than rigid and linear. ...they must encourage students to continue their pursuit of understanding and self-knowledge."
