The Question Matrix

The Question Matrix

The Question Matrix was designed by Chuck Weiderhold in 1991. It contains 36 question starters asking what, where, when, which, who, why and how. Proceeding through the matrix, the questions become more complex and open-ended.

The Question Matrix could be used:

* to help students create their own questions about a specific topic and to encourage in-depth thinking
* as question starters for teachers to elicit further information about a student’s knowledge and understanding of a topic
* to formulate questions for a particular purpose eg organising a camp, answering questions on a program etc.
