Asking to Learn
Wendy L. Ostroff
Top creative minds have
a trait in common:
They ask questions.
Allison Hintz, Lynsey Gibbons,
and Melinda Knapp
Asking What do you understand
so far? helps students think
through math problems.
Dan Rothstein, codirector of
the Right Question Institute,
discusses the great benefits
that come to students—and
teachers—when students learn
to ask their own questions.
