When you want to learn a little, ask a little question. When you want to learn a lot, ask a big one. Watch this video to learn how to shift from little questions to big ones.

Your Turn Think about a topic you are studying. Then write one question about the topic for each starting word below:

  • Do . . .
  • Is . . .
  • Who . . .
  • What . . .
  • Where . . .
  • When . . .
  • Why . . .
  • How . . .
  • Should . . .

Answer as many of your questions as you can. Which questions require the biggest answers?
