Creation is at the top of the revised Bloom's Taxonomy, and therefore, comes after students acquire the foundational skills and knowledge needed to create.

Do This Today

Ask students to apply a course concept to solve a real or fictitious problem. One way to create the problem is to imagine some “what if” scenarios for a concept. What if this variable was different? What if we changed the location of this situation? In history, how would this playout in today’s world? In economics, how would the process play-out if interest rates were very high? Have students consider the question in small groups, and then report out to the entire class.

Remember that this is just an example of how to get started
 with this Teaching Method.
