Reflection: Trust and Respect How Much Gasoline Do You Really Use? - Section 1: Engage


When a discussion can be easily joined by many students, asking the students to lead the discussion is always a fun way to get the kids talking. In this lesson students think about their family's driving habits. When you give the students opportunities to ask one another questions and discuss the answers, students lead the questioning in the conversation. For more information about how to promote student-led inquiry check out Capacity Building Skills: Inquiry Based Learning by the Ontario Ministry of Education.
