Investigating Local Growth
Site Leader: Please help participants keep track of time.
What is the most serious challenge to the growth or stability of your city or town? Take five minutes to briefly list the beginning steps you would use to introduce this "problem" to your class. What would be your primary question? How might you use performance assessment to find out what they learned? What sorts of resource materials might you use? When you have completed your thoughts, use the remaining 10 minutes to discuss them with a partner.
