HIT GUIDE HERE TO CREATE AND ASK TWO-FOOTED QUESTIONS

Students will examine bias in a US Congressman’s questions to a Canadian doctor who described single payer health care in Canada. http://www.cbc.ca/asithappens/features/2014/03/12/canadian-doctor-schools-us-senator-on-public-health-care/

Students then propose interview questions that could have led to genuine learning on both sides of the healthcare issue. Discuss how questions are sometimes used to defend a one-sided opinion that was already entrenched.

When questions probe an issue so that both sides of the issue emerge fairly – then change, growth and improvement will follow. Students create a list of ten unbiased questions on one of 20 topics suggested – in order to spark curiosity for learning on both sides of controversial issues.

Students create 10 unbiased interview questions to learning counterpoints for their chosen topic.

Students find controversial topics here that might spark interest to research equally on both sides – from pit-bull ownership to sports salaries.
Students discover how questions drive curiosity and teach us on both sides of an issue. They see why it is incumbent on a questioner to creatively wrestle with both sides of the topics they write about. So they have to disconnect from personal opinions in order to learn freely without being distracted by their own ideas. When students rethink their own ideas through questioning filters they begin to encode new information in their writing.

Hopefully these ready-to-roll brain-based materials will benefit your learners and leaders as they do mine at middle, secondary, university levels and beyond.
