Reflection: Problem-based Approaches What Are The Benefits of Parks In A Community? - Section 3: Questions For The Presenter


After giving students time to reflect and create questions, they produced a variety of excellent responses including:

Why did you choose this career?

Do you like designing parks?

What is the your favorite part of your job?

How can we stop pollution at the pond?

How many parks have you developed?

What do you do when there is a lot of algae in a pond?

Will construction of a park and pond disturb the wildlife?

Why don't they put filters near the pond to catch pollutants when it rains?


Many of these questions will be answered as student work through the experience. Some questions may need to be answered directly from our guest speaker and so I will encourage and guide students to contact the speaker for an answer.
