Why Do You Ask?

From asking questions that require an answer To asking questions that require a conversation.

Book Report - Part 2


The medium is the message.
 
Most students try to guess what the teachers want them to say.
 
The preoccupation with getting trivia questions correct as a verification of learning.
 
When one learns to ask questions, then the education begins.
 
Questions -
 
Can I actually get students to the point where their questions from class become the test questions?
 
Is the method only possible once there is a fundamental base of knowledge in the mind of the student?
 
I liked the Vaccination Theory of education. The idea that once you take a class it is completed. Clever and still applicable in our approach to public education.
