Ever ask students to create research questions? Were their ideas a bit… blah? My own students had a very hard time writing questions they didn't already know the answer to! This video is how I solved that problem: upgrade research questions with depth and complexity.

Objective

Students upgrade their bland research questions using prompts of depth and complexity and then create a sequence of questions using concepts from Bloom's Taxonomy.

Steps

  1. Students pick a topic and create 3 - 5 questions.
  2. They upgrade those questions by adding in a prompt of depth and complexity.

  3. Students develop a sequence of questions by asking a compare and contrast question plus a question that requires them to make a decision.

What teachers are saying

"I just subscribed to Byrdseed.TV and am loving it -- though it is kind of scary addictive in a binge-watching kind of way (that, by the way, is a compliment)." ~ Elizabeth from Florida

"The ideas presented are clear and straight-forward and my students have responded positively to every lesson idea I’ve used from Mr. Byrd and his colleagues. It’s my favorite go-to resource for gifted students." ~ Melissa in North Carolina

"I absolutely LOVE all of the ideas on your site. Right now I am using Byrdseed TV to differentiate activities for my clustered students to work on when the rest of the class is doing something they’ve already mastered." ~ Wendy in Washington
