Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Help Wanted: Seeking Opposing Viewpoint to Help Us Make a Fair Judgement - Section 3: Homework Challenge


I was surprised by the amount of articles that came in. The kids really had a great discussion about the fact that it was hard to find good evidence to support MSG or electronic toys. They said they could find way more against. That led into a great conversation about what searches can tell us about viewpoints. They said if you can find lots of articles to support it, that might be a good indicator of what you should believe. It was an interesting conversation today and totally student led.
