An ability to be curious, to ask questions and have an open intrigue about the world is a more modern way of assessing intelligence than simply assessing known facts. Teachers now face the task of not just imparting knowledge but developing an insatiable appetite for learning in their pupils. But how do we stimulate in students, this continuous and lifelong desire for acquiring knowledge? We start by encouraging keen questioners and active thinkers in the classroom.
A perfect pupil may be defined as having many qualities: good behaviour, active listening, natural intelligence; the list goes on. But many educators are now citing being unafraid to ask questions as a key ingredient to the perfect pupil. With these three steps, we believe you can stimulate the curiosity that leads to children becoming life-long learners.
We would love to expand this resource and help more parents, teachers and role models foster curiosity. Have you got any further questions or tips to share with us? Or examples from your classroom?Back to news list Next article
