Aim: How can we develop questions for conversation?

Do Now: Sit with your group below.

It’s time to begin preparing for our weekly Seminar.

Last time, we talked about the racism economic pressures that continued to curtail civil liberties for newly-freed AfricanAmericans in the South.

We've shifted our focus to examine race and economy in the North: for African Americans during the Great Migration, and for Mexican immigrants, seeking opportunity across the border.

✍ Question Formulation

  1. Ask as many questions as you can.
  2. Do not stop to discuss, judge, or answer any of the questions.
  3. Write down every question exactly as it was stated.
  4. Change any statements into questions.

After you have finished listing all of your groups questions, go through and rewrite any closed questions as open questions.
