CRITICAL THINKING ACTIVITY – IT’S THE ANSWER

An engaging, yet challenging, assignment for High School, College, and University students.

This idea could be used with any novel!

In all of my first year undergraduate classes, I think of ways to engage my students in the higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy. This is my newest assignment, and I am thrilled with the results.

This assignment is the follow up to, IT’S THE QUESTION. The first part of this assignment is about formulating a question that relates to both a small excerpt of philosophy and a novel or screenplay, and then creating a visual representation of the question.  IT’S THE ANSWER asks students to answer their questions. This idea could be used for any novel.  This particular grouping goes with Plato’s Theaetetus.  I have also done this with Plato’s Republic and Nietzsche’s Thus Spake Zarathustra, but I think any work of philosophy that you are familiar with will work as well.

This product contains student examples that compare Plato’s Theaetetus to either a screenplay or book.  I have a product on TpT on the Theaetetus that will help students and teachers understand its fundamental teaching.  The Theaetetus asks the question: “What is knowledge?” and suggests that fixed knowledge exists and how we might obtain it.  Socrates’ focus is on the difference between knowledge and opinion. I think there is an undeniable need to have this discussion with high school, college, and university students.

The screenplays and books are approved by me – the list below are books and scripts that work really well with the Theaetetus.  Sometimes students work with the novels or plays instead – this depends on how much time they have to read the text.  The links to the screenplays are included in this product.

 

They may be used as homework, class work, individual, or group work.

 

INCLUDED IN THIS PRODUCT ARE THE FOLLOWING:

✺ Instructions for both teachers and students on how to craft an excellent answer.

✺ SIX student examples.  These are the answers along with the questions and images.  TWO of the questions are the same ones that are in IT’S THE QUESTION – FOUR are unique to this product.  Of course, while the questions overlap, this product contains the answers. FIVE of the answers compare the Theaetetus to The Little Prince.

✺ Links to all of the images used in the student examples.

✺ Links to the screenplays that were used in the creation of the questions and that go well with Plato’s Theaetetus.

✺ A link to Plato’s Theaetetus.

✺ I have a product on Plato’s Theaetetus.  Four student questions relate to the midwife section – you will find an in-depth exploration into this section in my product below.  The other questions also relate to the Theaetetus, but those sections are further along in the dialogue.
