Brainstorm Method Activity Objective:You'll learn different ways of brainstorming in this activity. You'll research a brainstorming method with your group, but also get to see what other groups are looking into so that you can try out the most appealing one in your next essay. Over the course of the semester, you'll get to try out all of the different brainstorming methods as you fine tune your argumentative writing skills. Directions: Within your group, research a brainstorm method that could apply to preparing for an essay. Develop an argument as to why you think that particular brainstorm method is worth trying. You will present your argument alongside a group Padlet post to our class page. Your Padet must include a representation of your brainstorm method i.e. text, picture, diagram, screengrab, drawing etc. You will reference your Padlet post during the presentation. The class will have one minute following your presentation for feedback/comments/questions.
