      About Make Just One Change
      The authors of Make Just One Change argue that formulating one’s own questions is “the single most essential skill for learning”—and one that should be taught to all students.

      They also argue that it should be taught in the simplest way possible. Drawing on twenty years of experience, the authors present the Question Formulation Technique, a concise and powerful protocol that enables learners to produce their own questions, improve their questions, and strategize how to use them.

      About the Authors
      Dan Rothstein and Luz Santana are co-directors of The Right Question Institute (RQI). They have more than twenty years of experience at RQI, designing and implementing innovative, participatory educational programs and curricula. Prior to his work with RQI, Rothstein developed and implemented education programs in Kentucky, Massachusetts, and Israel. Santana is a former advocate for low-income parents and families.
