The Question Formulation Technique @SCILearn

Today I read a great post on getting students to ask better questions from The Science of Learning Blog called The Question Formulation Technique: 6 Steps to Help Students Ask Better Questions.

I read the Harvard Education Letter article, Teaching Students to Ask Their Own Questions, in the fall and it really made sense to me! The Question Formulation technique is awesome!

This post pulls the best of the Harvard article and Habits of Mind together into a  concise 6 step method.

Try it out & let me know what you think!


Flipping for the Flipped Classroom!

I’ve been reading a lot about Flipped Classrooms lately.

To be honest, I didn’t really understand what the hype was about until after reading this article by Greg Green.

Now that I get it, I want in on the success! Here’s an excerpt from the article that really helped it click for me:

“By reversing our instructional procedures so that students do their homework at school, we can appropriately align our learning support and resources for all of our students, and eliminate the inequality that currently plagues our schools. When students do homework at school, they can receive a meal and access to technology (during a declining economy), and an overwhelming amount of support and expertise. When students do their homework at school, we can ensure that they will be able to learn in a supportive environment that’s conducive to their education and well-being.  For the first time in history, we can provide a level playing field for students in all neighborhoods, no matter what their financial situation is.”

Are you ready to flip your classroom? I’d love to hear from you!
