The 5 Habits Framework

1) Evidence (How do I know what's true?)

2) Perspective (Who might think differently?)

3) Connections (What other areas of knowledge are connected?)

4) Supposition (How might it be different if..?)

5) Significance (Is this important?)

New Zealanders: Leave Graveyard Ship Alone

New Zealanders: Leave Graveyard Ship Alone

1)  Should divers be banned form the wreckage?  What evidence might convince you otherwise?
2)  Why might a Chinese immigrant view this differently than an avid diving enthusiast?
3)  How is this connected to the Elgin marbles issue?  
4)  What if this happened in the US with different cultures represented?
5)  What can come from this?

Extension Activities:

1)  Students can research the ethics of excavation of known burial grounds?
2)  Students can write legal cases for different parties involved in this issue?
