I have lessons both in Helping Students Motivate Themselves and in Self-Driven Learning related to helping students learn good question-asking skills. I also have two “The Best…” lists related to asking questions.
After doing the lesson on asking good questions in my new book, I added a new “twist” at the end asking students to make a poster starting with “Asking good questions is important because….” It was a nice little summarization and reflective activity. Responses included:
Asking good questions is important because it will make you look smarter when you interview for a job.
Asking good questions is important because it will help you learn more information.
Asking good questions is important because they can either make you think about what you said or make you go after what you want.
Asking good questions is important because it will make your date want to go out with you again.
