Today we will answer our own questions!

How can answering your own questions benefit you at school? This is an example of a level three question that cannot be answer with a yes/no or a simple few word sentence. It requires you to really do some higher level thinking!

It is important to answer our own questions at school because we won't take away from other's learning. When we ask questions, we are taking control of what we want to learn and have more power over our own learning. You can get better grades when you answer your own questions, instead of copying answers from other students. When you answer your own questions, you prove that you are capable of meeting the outcomes. Answering your own questions develops your ability to wait patiently for your own turn and your ability to be a reflective problem-solver.
