After the vibrant discussion, students were tasked to transfer these skills to written sources so that the teacher can check their understanding and assess what they have learnt. Many students were able to complete the worksheet without much guidance and support their answers with evidence from the source (see Figures 11 and 12). These written sources are found in their textbook (pages 27 to 36).

An Inspiring Quote

"[Open-mindedness] includes an active desire to listen to more sides than one; to give heed to facts from whatever source they come; to give full attention to alternative possibilities; to recognize the possibility of error even in the beliefs that are dearest to us."

~ John Dewey, How We Think
