The Question Formulation Technique is a teaching strategy that provides a simple, yet powerful way to get students asking their own questions and building off their peers’ questions. It is an engagement tool, a way to encourage students to participate in, as well as forge their own learning path.

Created at the Right Question Institute in Boston the QFT is a foundational skill of Question Formulation that can be easily integrated into your current curriculum and have immediate impact in your class, from kindergarten to higher learning.
The ability to produce questions, improve questions and prioritize questions may be one of the most important—yet too often overlooked—skills that a student can acquire in their formal education. Strong critical thinking is often grounded in the questions we ask. By deliberately teaching questioning skills, we will be facilitating a process that will help students develop a mental muscle necessary for deeper learning, creativity and innovation, analysis, and problem solving.   -
