Announcing “Question Week 2017”

 

Warren Berger, author of “A More Beautiful Question” writes:

I am getting set to launch QUESTION WEEK 2017, an event I’m organizing in partnership with the Right Question Institute and a number of other leading organizations and programs focused on questioning. QUESTION WEEK 2017, runs from March 12 to March 18 (with a nod to master questioner Albert Einstein’s birthday on Monday, March 14). The event is designed to raise awareness of the power and value of questioning.

During Question Week, participating schools and classrooms across the US will conduct questioning exercises with students, sharing the results on social media (On the questionweek.com site, I am providing info that suggests/ explains possible questioning exercises or activities—or schools can do their own version). Visitors to the Question Week website will discover how “beautiful questions” have changed the world around us; they’ll also learn how to ask better questions themselves. And everyone will be encouraged to share their questions on the site, as well as on Twitter and Facebook.

I’ve previously posted many resources from Warren and others at The Best Posts & Articles About Asking Good Questions.
