Debrief

Deconstruct the experience. What are the three acts of this story? What were the teacher moves? How is it different than the same kind of problem in a textbook?

Homework

  1. Email a photo or a video that’s less than one minute long to dan@mrmeyer.com that you think will provoke a lot of questions. Also bring it tomorrow.
  2. Take the end-of-the-day survey.
  3. Deciding on a promising question or content standard for your own three-act task.

For assignment #1:

  • +1 – It generates a question.

For assignment #3:

  • +1 – It generates a question.
  • +1 – That question is guessable.
  • +1 – Answering the question requires more information.
  • +1 – Interpreting the answer requires contextual knowledge.
  • +1 – The answer can be validated.
  • What is the answer?
  • What question leads to that answer?
  • How can I develop that question?
    • through visuals
    • through guesses
    • through arguments
    • through modeling
  • How can I extend that question?

LinkDeveloping the Question

1. Create an informal graph with no units. That might be fun for students to fill out. That might express their personhood. Fill it out yourself ten data points.

2. Create and send in a 15 second video. Choose the y-axis. Graph your y-axis over time.

Send all of this, with team names, to dan@mrmeyer.com.

Textbook Makeover

— What is the hook? (Will it spill?)
— Can I make that question guessable?
— Can I illustrate it?
— Can I remove information to be added later?
— Can I validate their math?
— How could I extend this with a “sequel?”
