"Hey grandpa, what's for dinner?"
"What should I wear to work?"
"Who will be our next president?"
"What is the meaning of life?"
When I decided to participate in the A to Z blogging challenge 2016, I eschewed the notion of choosing a theme, but I also desired an organizing structure. Thus, I contemplated:
What theme should I choose?
Should I have a theme? I questioned.
Through the act of critiquing the merits and demerits of a theme, I realized life is full of questions.
Consequently, I thought...
Why not pose essential question?
I teach students to ask essential questions when reading.
I teach students to ask essential question when writing.

How many licks does it take to get to the tootsie-roll center of a tootsie-pop?

I have lots of questions about many topics, and the more questions I ask, the more I have.
Ask: It's the best way to find the answers.
