Visible Thinking Routine: Question Starts

I discovered this VTR during the DEEPdt Spacebox Challenge with 2nd graders at Mount Vernon Presbyterian School. Students were prepping for needfinding and were struggling with generating meaningful interview questions (beyond the Yes/No Qs) for Users around our campus. We used Questions Starts and Questions Sorts to brainstorm, develop, and collaboratively synthesize the Qs. There are pictures below of my students in action.  I seek as many moments as I can to utilize Harvard’s Project Zero  visible thinking routines in DEEPdt methodology.  Questions Starts can be utilized in Discover & Empathize mode. #StartwithQuestions
