Creative thinking comes naturally to some of us, but for others it takes practice and structure. The Answer Is… strategy is easy to integrate into any class to get your participants thinking “out of the box.” To boost brain safety, have participants answer your prompts anonymously.
1. Show The Answer Is... slide to your group and provide a few seconds of think time.
The Answer Is… A Square. What is the question?
2. Reveal each of these possible answers one at a time
4. Provide 30 seconds for everyone to generate a question and write it on a sticky note. Ask them to bring their sticky notes up to a board or wall space.
5. Read the questions aloud anonymously and choose several for further, in-depth discussion with the group.
