For decades our education system has focused on kids getting the right “answer.” Raise your hand. Fill in the blank. Take the test. But how much energy have we spent teaching students to ask the right questions? And isn’t it the questioning and subsequent process of seeking information where TRUE learning occurs?

Targets: Asking questions in a digital text, multimedia resources for K-8 learners.
