1. Individually or as a group brainstorm a large set of questions on the topic and write each question on post it notes or note cards.
2. Create a horizontal continuum using masking tape on the table or draw one on the white board. This horizontal axis will represent generativity, that is, how likely the question is to generate engagement, insight, creative action, deeper understanding, and new possibilities. As a group, discuss and place each question on the horizontal line
3. Create a vertical continuum (axis) bisecting the horizontal axis. This line represents how genuine, that is, how much we care about investigating it, the question is. As a group, discuss and place each question by moving the post note up or down on the vertical axis.
