"Over a decade ago, cognitive scientists John D. Bransford and Daniel J. Schwartz asked fifth graders and college students to create a recovery plan to to protect bald eagles from extinction. Surprisingly, the two groups came up with plans of similar quality (although the college students had better spelling skills)."

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:

As long as the questions do not circle back to one right answer then critical thinking is used. Too often, questioning is brought back to the one right answer rather than exploring the questions from the many perspectives in the classroom.

How do students learn to ask questions? Today many schools are driven by test taking, but lacking in teaching students how to ask questions. We ask student to be critical thinkers, but do not necessarily provide the tools. This post will help you with some of the tools.

Learn about  different types of questions:

* Display questions

* Referential questions

* Open-ended/divergent questions

* Closed/convergent questions

* Low risk questions

Consider the purposes of questions

Effective questions vs ineffective questions

How to design effective questions

And last (but not least) find 30 thought-provoking questions to ask your students.

This resource is rich with material that may help you move your students in their skills in asking questions.

I agree Teri. It encourages reading and encourages students to be in charge of their learning.

Using the Socratic process the educator is a tutor.  The process  encourages evaluative and analytical thinking.
