Studying before the lesson
Mrs. Hopkins, a US Government teacher, tells her students to study the lessons that they will be going over in class and come up with two questions to ask in class. She tells to her students that if their two questions aren't answered during the lesson in class, they can ask them at the end of the period. Her students that do this continuously score high on all tests and quizzes, whereas, her students that don't do this score lower. What can she do to get all of her students to use this method of studying?

Like adults, students need "pay" for working or some time of incentive. I would suggest for her to add bonus points for the students who submit their questions.

I like this idea. A variation that I'd use would be to break students into groups of 56 and have them ask questions to each other and then share with the class.

Using a reward system could help the students to become motivated to create these questions as a method of studying. Giving incentives usually helps students to do what is asked. Once it becomes habit you can remove the incentive.

To ensure that students questions are answered, she could have students submit the questions as they come in to class. This can be done electronically through various programs. She could also have students asked each other the questions.

I like the idea of having students ask each other questions. That way students are required to have questions in order to be able to contribute to the discussion.
