Known as the US’ leading ‘Questionologist’ and ‘Questioning Guru’, Connie Hamilton is proud to be changing the way that educators, school administrators, and classroom teachers like yourself think about questioning. Her work comes in response to a wealth of recent research that indicates that teachers are asking the wrong questions in class, in a way that detriments both yourself and your students.

As a recent think piece on Medium described, the way you were taught to question in your teacher training programs likely stifles individuality, creativity and open-ended exploration. The article also proposes that the questioning that takes place in your classroom is likely borne of a rigid assessment system that is focused on standardized testing and ranking students.

Instead, ‘Hacking Questions’ has been written to prompt a rethink of the way that the school system asks questions and to consider what benefits better question asking may promote within your classroom.

While closed and rigid questioning can shut down growth and inquisitiveness, open questioning can be the spark that will help your students to flourish.
