Defining The Task Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Defining the Task First Step in the Big6 Research Process
  • 2. Defining the Task with Guiding Questions
    • Guiding Questions help focus and expand research.
      • Thinking about what might be interesting and important to learn about their topic, compare broad, open-ended questions with narrow, closed questions.
      • Play "red light, green light," to test for appropriate guiding questions.
      • (This game shows that one-answer questions "stop" the flow of information and is a fun way for students to test and select good guiding questions.)
