Questioning for focus
The Question Formulation Technique
Developed by Luz Santana and Dan Rothstein, the Question Formulation Technique was created to foster student questioning. This QFT was developed as a collaborative process, because students' questions are ignited by other students' questions. However, it can be also be used effectively for independent inquiry projects. Students may work independently, followed by pair or group sharing throughout the process.
QUESTIONING TO DETERMINE "NEED & want TO KNOWS"
Once you've determined your hypothesis or Inquiry question, you'll need to produce need to know or investigate questions. These are the questions which you will investigate, because they provide information which you will use to support your hypothesis or Inquiry question. You may want to organize your questions utilizing a mind mapping tool. (See Webtools Page). Place your Hypothesis or Primary Research Question in the center of the web and as you add your need to know questions, you'll begin seeing how they're connected, categories, sub-questions etc.
