Work continues on our Heritage Project. We have presented two lessons to the students on how to develop deeper research questions for their chosen themes. For two class periods yesterday and today the students were given opportunities to think of questions that would like to investigate. These were written down.
Tonight’s homework is for the students to continue thinking of questions that would like to find the answers to, and, to post them to our Heritage Project website! Each student was given their personally written list of questions to take home, and the whole class was shown “Teacher Challenge #1”, the post on the Heritage blog that explains just what is needed to complete this homework assignment.
