As described by its authors at the Right Question Institute, the Question Formulation Technique is “a step-by-step strategy for teaching students how to formulate, work with, and use their own questions. This deceptively simple yet profoundly important practice results in students who are more curious and engaged, take greater ownership of their own education, and are learning more deeply than ever before.” In second grade at Nueva we are always looking for ways to democratize our classroom learning culture, and we have been inspired by the book, published by the Right Question Institute, Make Just One Change: Teach Students to Ask Their Own Questions, by Dan Rothstein and Luz Santana. The ideas in this book have helped us restructure investigations and to inform our general practice to draw more deeply from our students’ questions and interests while maintaining our focus on the key themes and content of our second-grade curriculum. In this workshop, I will provide an overview of the protocols that the authors outline, share an example of an investigation we facilitate in second grade, and give you all the opportunity to ask your own questions using this technique!
