In this age of instant answers to closed-end questions, students need engaging, thought-provoking, occasionally personalized learning experiences that will keep them ahead of technology. Students need materials that are voice assistant and search engine resistant. Innovation does not materialize instantly like a search result.
Enter Research Prompts. Research Prompts are a set of challenges that use research tasks such as a combination of open-ended questions, closed-ended problems, and cognition-sparking scenarios to guide students through various levels of thinking based on Bloom’s Taxonomy. Furthermore, this book focuses on creative problem solving and critical thinking. These research challenges are perfect to use as classroom warm-ups, bell-ringers, and homework exercises.
