Reflection: Staircase of Complexity What do I Want Others to Know? Brainstorming Ideas - Section 2: Guided and Independent Practice


It almost seems easier when someone gives you a controversial issue and ask you your opinion. For students, it is really hard to come up with a worthy theory or thesis but much easier to support the theory once you have it. I want students to work towards being able to come up with their own important opinion that they want to support and argue. In this lesson, they are not creating theories but instead just noticing what is around them and beginning to form ideas about it and maybe even the beginning of finding a way to explain why its important. Being aware of the stuff around you is the first part of figuring out what is most important.
