Curiosity and Asking Questions

Slides from a lesson plan focused on developing curiosity and formulating questions. Students complete a curiosity self-assessment developed by librarians at Oregon State University, discuss what curiosity looks like in their academic and personal lives, and practice developing questions about essays they've read in class using the Question Formulation Technique. The lesson was inspired by this article: Rempel, Hannah Gascho, and Anne-Marie Deitering. "Sparking-curiosity—Librarians’ role in encouraging exploration." In the Library with the Lead Pipe (2017).
