Poem A Day:
This one is just for fun- I play it as students walk in (it is clean) and we do not analyze it. It is called “21 questions”. Today is all about INQUIRY.
Today’s objective is: Students will craft questions to answer through research for their “capturing reality” projects.
Today, students will listen to Listen to one piece of original nonfiction- “The Spirit of Inquiry” from Ted Radio Hour. and assess what the creators did well to create an engaging show.(students listen to two sections out of 5)
Students also think about the content covered in the podcast. It was all about asking the right questions. Inquiry is all about you asking your own questions.
I gave them this handout for today’s lesson.
Students apply our lesson today to their “Capturing Reality” projects.
They create at least SIX questions they may be interested in learning the answers to.
Recap/answer any questions.
