Engaging Students in the Making of Good New Ideas
Module Nine -- The Phoenix Checklist

The CIA designed this list to make sure agents considered all the angles of any challenge they faced. How would you modify this list so that your students might use it to help them invent good new ideas?

Go to http://blog.futurelab.net/2007/01/the_phoenix_checklist.html and copy the list into your learning log. Identify the most promising questions by turning them bold.

You will find The Phoenix Check List on pages 138-144 of Thinkertoys.

Please do not move to next module until instructed to do so by the facilitator.
