The Learning Pit

Since 1992 I've had a keen interest in questions and questioning skills. Do you know what I've found? The subject simply keeps growing on me. What does that mean?

It means, the depth and breadth of questions seems limitless. The short version..? "Questions may be the main driver of almost any communicative effort, whether it be influence, teaching and facilitation, investigation and innovation or parenting and coaching."

You name it. It seems that without questions everything stops. One teacher that has the ability to illustrate the effects of questions is James Nottingham. Look at how he presents "The Pit".
