  22. 22. Guiding Questions Armed with the big idea, the essential question, and the challenge, students can now generate their own guiding questions to identify the knowledge they will need to understand to develop a solution to the challenge. Students conduct thorough and thoughtful research as this sets the foundation for determining an suitable solution.
  23. 23. Guiding Activities Local research to discover the particular issues, advantages, disadvantages, needs, and aspects of their community connected to the topic. Conduct surveys and opinion polls that can be used to gather information from the stakeholders. Expand their scope to include interviews or interactions with experts from around the world. Teacher supported.
  24. 24. Identify a Solution Each group selects a single solution to develop and implement: action steps, needed materials and where they will obtain them, responsibilities for each group member, any relevant timing considerations, documentation, appropriate audience, how success will be measured, and so on. All of these decisions are organized into a work plan.
  25. 25. Implementation After identifying their solutions, the students will implement them, measure outcomes, reflect on what worked and what didn’t, and determine whether they made progress in addressing the challenge. When implementation is complete, students share their work with the rest of the world.
  26. 26. Publishing Results and Reflections Students build their solution video and record their reflections. The three-to-five minute solution video should include a description of the challenge, a brief description of the learning process, the solution, and the results of the implementation. Students keep individual written, audio, or video journals throughout the process. As a culminating event, students can be provided a series of prompts for final reflections about what they learned about the subject matter and the process.
