Our 5th grade team's Mrs. Pound is using digital magazines from National Geographic Explorers for student to conduct research and to teach students how to create leveled questions for group discussion.
Students received a guide to the levels of questions from Blooms Taxonomy to help direct their reading. Now they are each creating questions from their digital magazines for their groups to discus and learn from each other and their reading.
It is nice to see the level of engagement from these students. It is also amazing to see the level of questions that they are writing. Many of her student’s are reaching the “Evaluation” and “Synthesis” level questions.
Mrs. Pound, Nice work! This is engaging and students are learning to solve real world problems. You are taking your students out of the box!
