Their homework assignment was called “One Question.” Their job was to write one science question that they wanted to have answered, any area of science is fine. If they were goofy or tried to be funny they wouldn’t get credit.
What I got back blew my mind. There were such incredible questions that I’m going to assign this about once a month. I’m going to talk about some of these during science news days on Fridays. Some of them I will save for when we get to the topic. Some I will post as a list questions they can research and present for extra credit.
Extra credit is a sore point for some of you. My rule on extra credit is this: if you are missing more than two assignments that quarter, extra credit is not available to you. Extra credit is not an out for the lazy, it’s a boost for those who work hard and need a couple more points.
[I left the papers at school, I’ll post some of the questions next week. My own blog is blocked on school computers.]
