Strategies to Identify Students' Problem of Understanding

The KB Classroom Process starts with the identification of students' problem of understanding. Students identify these problems and may be presented by them as problems:

  • from observations (A guppy is not a mammal but I saw one give birth to its young)
  • from unknown phenomenon (What would I see if I traveled as fast as light?)
  • from personal experiences (Why do eggs explode in the microwave?)
  • they struggle with (Why does the moon seem to follow me?)
  • they are curious about (Why do Mentos explode in Coke?)
