2. Present the ideas in the class and discuss which challenge you want to realize

The teacher should support the class to find a good challenge – take time to discuss with the class, this negociation is an important part:

  • Can you realise it?
  • Is the time defined?
  • Is it not too easy, will you be proud about it?
  • How big is the impact? Can you change something  to make the impact higher?
  • Who can imagine to take part?
  • Those who can’t imagine: What would need to be changed, so you would be ready to take part?
  • Is it attractive? If not – how can it be made more attractive?

Adapt the challenge, till you it is a motivating challenge, in which all wan’t to take part.
