Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Mapping a Place: Afghanistan at a Crossroads (Day 1 of 2) - Section 2: QFT: Question Formulation Technique


Attached is a slide of the student-generated questions.  Because it is on butcher paper, I can post it for discussions in the coming unit events (RL.9-10.6).  By generating these questions and by continuing to pursue the cultural information about Afghanistan presented in this unit, the students hone their knowledge of a culture very different from theirs and from most U.S. citizens and are starting to a better appreciation of the values present in Afghanistan.  In this way, the events of the novel will become more comprehensible and rich, and the significance of the book as a cultural bridge will be more fully realized.  For now, we have a good set of questions, but I know that we will go much deeper into the layers of culture.
