Motivate Your Students by Presenting a Problem to Be Solved.
Guysenir, Maurice G.
Illinois Schools Journal, v63 n1-4 p18-23 1983
Provides ideas for sharpening the focus of teacher-moderated discussions in history classes. Asserts that students must be presented with a question that elicits solution of a problem ("Why did Lincoln wait so long before issuing the Emancipation Proclamation?") rather than factual recall ("What is the Emancipation Proclamation?"). Includes model questions. (KH)
