WEEK TWO: The 3-step process (and discussion)
1. Learn the 3-Step process
2. Participate in a class discussion
THE 3-STEP PROCESSSo far we have investigated what an essential question through examples and application of specific criteria. Being able to identify an essential question is an important skill. Just as important, however, is the skill of actually making them. That’s why we’ve developed a process to lead you through this rigorous, yet fun intellectual journey.Watch this video overview of the process: ( https://tinyurl.com/ya7ht4eg )Now examine these videos to get a quick glimpse of how the process is applied in three different teaching situations.
Title “Lord Acton- Power- Lord of the Flies” ( https://tinyurl.com/y79pdotm )
Title “Machiavelli- Hate- John Wilkes Booth Diaries” ( https://tinyurl.com/ycdarl4a )
Title “Ghandi–Greed–The Great Gatsby” ( https://tinyurl.com/y7723pyk )
CLASS DISCUSSIONThe overview video and samples were based on the themes compassion, power, hate and greed. Question: Looking ahead to the lessons you will create using the 3-Step Process, what is one theme YOU want to teach and why? Answer this question in the class forum here:
