- Product Description
This lesson is based on Question Formulation Technique or QFT, which prompts students to study an image/artifact, and then work in groups to develop questions based on that image/artifact. The image focused on is a photo of a museum exhibit that deals with the history of Pompeii. All components of a formal lesson plan are included. There is an extra lesson that can be done on day 2, or you can just use the first on to engage students in the QFT. You can also modify and edit it as you wish. You can even change the image/artifact according to the concepts you are working on in class. Images of the charts you can make are included, as well as some student question samples. I found this to be very engaging and student centered, thus if you are looking for a lesson that gets students to work in groups and have discussions this one is for you.
