Debatable questions are just better than non-debatable questions. They turn Bloom’s taxonomy upside down by presenting real motivation to remember, understand, and comprehend. Every ThinkCERCA™ lesson prepares students for career and college by presenting authentic critical thinking challenges that we face in our lives and careers. When we are challenged with debate, we are motivated to apply argumentation skills, to analyze, to evaluate and to create new knowledge.
