Reflection: Problem-based Approaches All That is Mine - Section 4: Is nor of heaven nor earth, for these are pleased.

 

Uncertainty in texts can be difficult for students, especially as they can be reluctant to accept that there is more than one interpretation of a text.  I find success simply by leaving the options available to students, as long as they are willing to look at the various interpretations from all angles and contexts and not simply get stuck on a line. 

For some of the more analytic students it can be difficult to concede that there is no 'right' interpretation, and that they will have different interpretations at different times.
