Great job of giving these students an avenue to think critically which will enable them to look at things around them and analyze them differently.

My book from ASCD discusses how we can rephrase academic standards, educational objectives, learning targets, and textual statements into good questions that address the cognitive rigor of college and career ready standards by challenging students to demonstrate higher order thinking and communicating depth of knowledge.
