Question Week

Mark 13-19 is Question Week, according to Warren Berger.

I appreciate that the site’s goal is to elevate the art of questioning, because “asking good questions helps us identify the right problem and generate creative solutions”.  There are some fun resources for educators, parents, students, and companies about questions on the site.  In honor of question week, the remainder of this post will only use questions (in a bulleted list, because I never need an excuse to make a bulleted list!).

  • Why are questions so easy for young children?
  • When do we lose that natural curiosity?
  • How can teachers turn over the questioning to students?
  • How does asking our own questions impact our learning?
  • Are inquiry projects successful because student questions drive the learning?
  • If the person who talks the most, learns the most, who is doing the most learning in your classroom?
  • How will you share Question Week in your site or district?
  • When you visit classrooms, do you track the number of questions asked by teachers and/or students?
  • Who asks the most questions in your class or school?
  • What makes a good question?
  • What is the best interview question you have been asked?
  • Which type of question do you dread in interviews?
  • Where do you curate your own inquiries?
  • Why isn’t every week question week?
  • Could you write a blog entirely in questions?
  • Have you ever had a conversation using only questions?
  • Does this list feel as random to you as it does to me?
  • What questions are floating around in your mind right now?
  • Where do you go to answer your own questions?
  • How do you share your new learning?
  • Will you comment on this blog?
  • How will you share this post with others?
  • How can I thank you for reading and sharing my questions today?
