Articles & Resources
While working on A More Beautiful Question, I got to know the folks at a fascinating nonprofit called The Right Question Institute. Dan Rothstein and Luz Santana, the RQI’s co-directors, have spent many years studying how kids (and adults, too) form questions. In developing their own “Question Formulation Technique,” they’ve found that it is, indeed, possible to teach kids to be better questioners—and in the process, help them become better thinkers.
This Video provides a quick glimpse of the QFT in action in a 12th grade Humanities class in Boston, MA.
