What goals do you hope to achieve with the method?

  • What is the primary goal you want to achieve with the method? What processes are you aiming to set in motion?
  • Does the method you selected match this goal?
  • Might the method have other consequences that you would welcome or prefer to prevent?

If your primary goal is to reveal the range and complexity of a subject and to awaken students’ curiosity, you can break the process down into several, deliberately short activities rather than presenting everything at once. However, if your primary goal is for students who don’t know each other yet to cooperatively develop creative solutions to a problem, methods using short activities and strict timing are less suitable. It takes time to establish an atmosphere of good teamwork in which various ideas can be voiced, heard, and discussed.
