"The authors of "Make Just One Change" argue that formulating one's own questions is the single most essential skill for learning and one that should be taught to all students. They also argue that it should be taught in the simplest way possible. Drawing on twenty years of experience, the authors present the Question Formulation Technique, a concise and powerful protocol that enables learners to produce their own questions, improve their questions, and strategize how to use them. "Make Just One Change" features the voices and experiences of teachers in classrooms across the country to illustrate the use of the Question Formulation Technique across grade levels and subject areas and with different kinds of learners."

We all know the basic questions like: who, what, where, why and how, but if kids and teens are going to be any good at inquiry and self-directed learning, they need a better introduction to question building than this simple guide. Somehow we missed this title from 2011 and should not have. Part of the learning commons program is the building of great learning experiences and experimental projects that may succeed or fail. An essential element is to turn kids from responders into questioners. But how is this done? Teachers who love lecturing may already be good at asking fact questions as they present but they often use their technique to grab and maintain attention. The questions in this book are designed to stimulate thinking, inquiry, imagination, mystery, investigation, wonder, and self-directed learning. It is quite a different world and stimulates quite a different response from learners that is very pleasing to a teacher librarian bent on stimulating great learning experiences in the learning commons. We recommend this book highly. There are other books that help in building questions such as Carol Koechlin’s Q Tasks published in 2007 by Pembroke. In any event, this is a great book to dig into, learn, and then study with teachers as you begin any collaboration. Highly recommended.
