Elaborative interrogation

A great way to learn is to ask yourself questions. Little kids know this intuitively, as they run around asking "Why, why, why-" A great deal of research has proven that the kids are on to something. Getting students to answer questions, such as "Why is this fact true-" aids learning.

The main reason asking "why" questions seems to work is that it encourages you to integrate the new fact with things you already know. Doing so improves your memory for the new fact by giving you more "hooks" to find it. Research also suggests that some ways of questioning yourself work better than others.
