Dan Rothstein and Luz Santana think students aren't asking enough questions in today's classrooms. Instead, the co-founders of The Right Question Institute are proposing a new learning method: let students ask their own questions, and have the teacher there as a facilitator. They believe it's important for all students to learn how to ask their own questions, and in doing so, they'll better understand the math problem or historical period they're studying. So what are the right questions? We invite educators, parents and students to join the discussion.
