Crafting Curiosity

It’s no secret to experienced educators that students in grades 7-9 often struggle to get their essays and projects off the ground because they have difficulty formulating just the right question. This course helps students meet that challenge. Drawing on many of the ideas laid out in Warren Berger’s book A More Beautiful Question: Using Inquiry to Spark Breakthrough Ideas, and a series of design thinking protocols, students in this course workshop their research questions in preparation for upcoming projects in their classes. They also work to develop more effective questioning techniques to drive their own learning on a day-to-day basis. After this course, your students will have the tools to identify, define, and evaluate the quality of their own questions, helping them avoid weeks of floundering in pursuit of vague research questions.
