The Question Formulation Technique in Action

The Question Formulation Technique (QFT) is a simple yet rigorous process that teaches students to produce, improve and prioritize their questions. This video provides a quick glimpse of the QFT in action in a 12th grade Humanities class in Boston, MA. As you watch pay particular attention to the role of the teacher and the students. This same process is used across the country and beyond in classes from kindergarten through higher education.
