About What! Asking students to report ABOUT a topic requires them to research, gather, and report known facts using CLOSED questions. Student work demonstrates being information consumers of existing facts. • Write a report ABOUT the planets in our solar system. • Create a PowerPoint ABOUT the Civil War. • Write a book report ABOUT your favorite novel. • Create a website or podcast ABOUT your home town.
