By teaching students how to create high-order questions which link various subject areas, contextual and other external content, and personal reflection, educators will more strongly engage with their analytical abilities. In addition, exposure to meaningful, honest conversations linked to an understanding of the present world and the experiences of others will help to enhance the sense of community in both the classroom and school.
