WHAT WE’RE LEARNING:
Now that we know how to construct a good question, we’re going to practice thinking BIG. Specifically, we’re going to look at how and why we ask BIG questions.
WHY WE’RE LEARNING IT:
Your boss at work might never ask you when the War of 1812 started. (Spoiler alert: It started in 1812). But you will almost certainly be asked to tackle big problems, think of creative solutions, or try to find a new way of doing something. So in addition to learning facts, we’ll spend a lot of time in class practicing coming up with BIG questions that can direct our studies to new, interesting heights.
WHAT WE’LL KNOW BY THE END OF CLASS:
• Draft a BIG question that can’t be solved by a quick Google search.
• Bellringer (10 min.)
• What is a BIG question? (8 min.)
• Question drafting (10 min.)
• Big Tower game (15 min.)
