Driving questions are necessary to have an interesting subject matter. Questions are able to give students the right to challenge themselves and bring out the main points in an important subject or theme. Without leading
questions, there would not be a valid point to make. When referring to an attentive audience, we need to satisfy their need for getting the answers they deserve and accomplishing a purpose. Driving questions causes one
to recall and remember the subject matter. Questions serve as a constant reminder of what should not be forgotten.
Students do have a voice to choose the resources that they use to get a project done. There are an abundance of resources that are available to every student. By taking advantage of these resources, they access their mind
and intelligence to whatever is available and appropriate for their age and maturity level. We should always know as teachers that our students are very capable and reliable in getting the job done. They should always
depend on their local libraries, website, newspaper articles and local magazines for correct and accurate information. By doing personal and investigative reporting, their knowledge can only be increased!
