In Chapter 7 we explore the fourth phase of the LAUNCH Cycle: Navigate Ideas
N: Navigate Ideas
Students apply that newly acquired knowledge to potential solutions. In this phase, they navigate ideas. Here they not only brainstorm, but they also analyze ideas, combine ideas, and generate a concept for what they will create.
Here are some questions to ask after reading Chapter 7:
- How might the PARTS framework apply to brainstorming and creative work in your classroom?
- How can inquiry-based research fuel the understanding of a problem or process?
- What are the other ways (besides reading) that students can begin to research at all levels of school?
- Are there areas in your curriculum or schedule where you can begin to infuse this fourth phase of the LAUNCH Cycle? What about in your own professional practice?
