SOS: Three Questions

This strategy allows students the opportunity to ask three questions, leading them into their own learning through deeper investigation. Introduced by Trace Dominguez at DENSI 2015, this strategy reinforces the concept that when students generate their own questions about a story, text, problem, or topic, it piques student interest and gives purpose for reading or research thus driving learning through inquiry.

SOS Story: Hugh McDonald

The Spotlight On Strategies series is one of Discovery Education’s most popular resources. First introduced 2012, these strategies help teachers use media in effective and engaging ways in their classrooms. The best part about the SOS is that they are flexible and can be used across grade levels and content areas. We are excited for our new SOS series that spotlights teachers, showing off how they have put the SOS to work in their classrooms!
