Mini Lesson – Teaching the Habitude of Curiosity

Champion learners are curious about everything. They ask questions and get themselves involved in all stages of learning, without worrying about the answer, but relishing in the process. They have learned that by posing questions, they can generate interest and aliveness in the most exciting or mundane situation. This inquisitive attitude fuels their unrelenting quest for continuous learning.

Yet, how often have we heard this: Teacher, teacher…. so what is the right answer?

Students have become skilled at answering our questions rather confident and comfortable asking their own.  The following mini-lesson from Classroom Habitudes is one of my favorites, as I seek to move students toward asking this instead: Teacher, teacher….. do I have the right question?
