Renewable Energy…a comment on the comments

Thank you to the students that have taken the time to respond to recent posts. One comment in particular has promted me to post this .

I have copied the comment below from a reply to a request from Zoe and Mercedes. Well done girls for ‘digging deeper’ with your questioning.

Zoe and Mercedes,

I am posing a couple of questions, but as you know when I am posing a question to a few, I am asking the question of all students.

So here they are:

 Questions #1and #2

Did you answer the third question about nuclear power plants?

 If so, did you carry out any research before you gave me your answer or did you just take a 50/50 shot at getting it right?


Question #3

This is a mathematical question. Look at the results of each of the polls. Can you explain why  the % of Yes/No answers to the second question is more equal?

 I look forward  to all of your responses.

Renewable Energy…your opinion

Having an opinion is something that is encouraged in our classroom: being able to express your ideas and challenge those of others.

This week we have used a variety of information sources to inform our attitudes toward the question “Renewable Energy or Fossil Fuels?”

Another resourcejust added )   Pros and cons of energy sources.

Below I have created a number of simple polls. All of them pose skinny questions.

Complete each of the polls and leave a comment telling me which of the polls was the most difficult to respond to and why. You may also choose to respond to the comments of others.
