At anytime during the lesson, the teacher encourages S's to present for 15-30 seconds their find of curiosity. These are short "tease" like presentations to sell and inspire other students to dive deep using their own ideas. 

How does this idea help to spark student curiosity?

Everyone has a voice. The class has an unexpected feel encouraging ideas to go in every direction. All types of curiosity are welcomed. Short presentations give just enough for S's to explore more on their own where the curiosity continues. 1:1 environment is a must.

What grade level is this idea most appropriate for?

  • High School (9-12)

I'm intrigued as all get out, Joe. Do you have an example, a case in point, or even a little anecdote you could share to help me visualize this? Loving this idea of an on the spot elevator pitch for the rest of class, especially if created by students.
