I would like to ask my own students this question...
If you were the new Governor of Louisiana, what would you do to improve the state during your term(s)?
What kind of answers do you think you MIGHT get?
I might ask them .....
As the new Governor of Louisiana, would you use social media during your term(s)?
What and/or why type of answers do you think you MIGHT get?
As the new governor, you were elected several months ago.....
When should the new governor take office or control of the state?
When would your students tell you they should take over the job. I think I know what my own students might say.
There are many, many What, Why, When, Where, & How questions that you might ask your own students and you better be ready for their answers because they just might surprise you. I know I have been as I love to present my "What if" questions to my on students.
During my tenure as a teacher, I was always asking What if... questions simply because that's want history teachers should do. Let the students think for themselves. I always did and wish I could still be doing that now.
