Reflection: Advanced Students Brainstorming For Your Own Argument - Section 2: Independent Work


This lesson should be adjusted based on what you now about your students.

I have included many options for brainstorming independently because this is what my advanced students need; however, in a less advance class or when working with students who need extra guidance, I would limit the options and add steps.

This is when knowing your students is valuable.  You undoubtedly have students that will want this freedom of discovery, but you also have students who would be overwhelmed by this.  As teachers it is our role to know which is which and provide for their needs accordingly so they can get to the same point in the way that is best for them.
