5 Ways to Make Better Questioners


Slide 1

Questioning helps us learn, explore the unknown, and adapt to change.


Slide 2

That makes it a most precious “app” today, in a world where


Slide 3

everything is changing and so much is unknown.


Slide 4

And yet, we don’t seem to value questioning. In our workplaces and in our classrooms


Slide 5

it is the answers we reward—and questions are barely tolerated.


Slide 6

To change that is easier said than done. But here are some


Slide 7

suggestions on how to encourage more questioning in the classroom and


Slide 8

in life beyond the classroom, where we’re really going to need it.


Slide 9


Slide 10


Slide 11

Questioning can be scary, an admission to the world that you don’t know the answer.


Slide 12

Create an environment where questioning becomes a strength, where it is welcome and desired.


Slide 13

One activity to kick it off: Have groups “questionstorm” an issue— no answers allowed!


Slide 14


Slide 15


Slide 16

Questioners are the ones breaking new ground in music, movies, and the arts.


Slide 17

They’re the explorers, the mavericks, the rebels.


Slide 18

They’re the explorers, the mavericks, the rebels. How cool is that?


Slide 19

Share their stories. Show where questioning took them.


Slide 20


Slide 21


Slide 22

Let kids tap into their imaginations and innate question-asking skills.


Slide 23

Make inquiry an engaging part of any challenge.


Slide 24

“Can you turn that statement into a question?”


Slide 25

“Can you open your closed questions and close your open ones?”


Slide 26

“Can you use ‘the 5 whys’ to get to the root of a problem (like why do kids stop asking questions)?”


Slide 27


Slide 28


Slide 29

Make grappling with a question & sharing it with others a rewarding process.


Slide 30

Praise and celebrate the questions that are asked—even the off-beat, crazy ones.


Slide 31


Slide 32


Slide 33

Turn questioning into a habit.


Slide 34

Observe the familiar in fresh ways. Be willing to be considered “naïve.” Question assumptions.


Slide 35

Make a great question an ongoing project, a report, or an original creation of some kind.


Slide 36

Discuss how questioning is used and what was learned.


Slide 37

If you’re a teacher, ask yourself


Slide 38

How might I encourage more questioning in the classroom?


Slide 39

How might I instill the habit of inquiry in my students?


Slide 40

Because… Knowing the answers may help them in school


Slide 41

but knowing how to question


Slide 42

but knowing how to question will help them in life.
