I woke up in the middle of the night last night thinking about my Living-Textbook. This is a website that contains hundreds (maybe dozens maybe thousands, I'm not sure) of questions that I developed related to newspaper articles. I haven't been keeping this up to date, but all of the sudden I thought of a really interesting quote that I just put up on the living textbook: "Yesterday's Current Events Questions are Today's Critical Thinking Questions. Great Essay Prompts!! Wonderful ways to contextualize in all subject areas." For a long time, I've realized that a question written to accompany a newspaper article could prompt excellent discussion many months/years after the newspaper article was published. But, I had never written such a statement on the site. I would very much like to find ways to continuously add to this site.
