Value of document-based questioning...

A fine video (from Fairfax County Public School)
illustrating how document-based questioning promotes:

critical thinking
analysis skills
co-operation - including synthesising responses
oral/public speaking skills
reading/comprehension skills

I especially like:
*one question - multiple primary and secondary documents sourced to answer it
*how these students sort perspectives into bucket lists which are shared and compared

While document-based questioning ideally applies to documents in History,
I wonder if these principles could be applied to:
*analysing extracts from novels esp the classics
* novel into film - comparing differences and values
* advertising - comparing the value of different advertisements
of the same product or on the same topic

To teach is to keep learning
