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.
