What do you know, what do you want to know, and what did you learn?

The Internet makes it super easy to find out just about anything you want to know. In fact, it's often way too easy to get lost in a vast ocean of details and forget how you ended up there. Teach your students beginning critical thinking skills by helping them identify a starting point, a specific set of answers to acquire, and a review of the knowledge they gained when they are introduced to new material.

Teach your students how to frame their research and reading. Because scratching a mental itch can be just as satisfying as scratching a real one.
