Quotes for Pedagogy of Questions
Posted March 29, 2015on:
As I mull over designing a possible Pedagogy of Questions workshop, I rediscovered from quotes I collected.
From Lord Alexander:
We learn more by looking for the answer to a question and not finding it than we do from learning the answer itself.
From Alexandra Trenfor:
The best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don’t tell you what to see.
The now fairly generic:
If your students can Google the answer, you’re not asking the right questions!
I could not find the attribution for:
Before you talk, listen. Before you react, think. Before you criticize, wait. Before you quit, try.
To that last one, I would add: Before you answer, question.
