The Right Question Institute


In the Wikipedia article about inquiry Education, there is the following dictum:

  • [Teachers] talk to students mostly by questioning, and especially by asking divergent questions.
  • They do not accept short, simple answers to questions.

This institute appears to take Postman's procedure one step farther.

 a straightforward, rigorous process that helps all students learn how to produce their own questions, improve their questions, and strategize on how to use their questions
