Wonder Questions

“In fact, the only homework that I regularly give students is writing two interesting wonder questions per week in a journal.”

Then Bill shares some of his students’ wonder questions.

I thought this was such a great idea for teachers to do. This would be a great thing for teachers to model.

I have a little notepad that I used to keep my questions in. Now I keep them on a list on my phone. Sometimes I will look up the answers on the internet and sometimes my questions don’t have a right or wrong answer.

I feel like coming up with questions helps to make me grow. This is one example of always learning. There is always something out there that I don’t know and this helps me put things in prospective.

Even though I write them down when I think of them, I need to make a more conscious effort of doing this on a regular basis.

Some of my questions may be easy ones for others but they are things that I don’t know or things I’m not sure about.

Here are some questions that came up this week:

What are symptoms of the flu?
What is the difference in cough medicine labeled CF and DM?
When does Hanukkah start?

Do you have wonder questions? What have you asked this week? Do you do it on a regular basis? Please share.
