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

Can we discuss this without writing "metacognitive"? Can we use words that my grandmother might also use?
