Scaffolding Critical Questioning
Question Formulation Technique

STEP 1: Produce Questions

Four essential rules for producing your own questions:

• Ask as many questions as you can (Gives License to Ask).

• Do not stop to discuss, judge, or answer the questions (Creates Safe Space and Protection).

• Write down every question exactly as it is stated (Levels the Playing Field So All Questions and Voices Are Respected).

• Change any statement into a question (Insists on the Discipline of Phrasing, Asking, and Thinking in Questions, Not Statement).

STEP 2: Improve Your Questions
• Categorize the questions as closed- or open-ended.
• Name the advantages and disadvantages of each type of question.
• Change questions from one type to another.

STEP 3: Prioritize the Questions
• Choose your three most important questions.
• Why did you choose these three as the most important?

Next Steps
• How are you going to use your questions?
