Headlines on the topics of “storms” and “wind power” serve to encourage and formulate a related topic for discussion. To form a basis for discussion, students should study fundamental aspects of both topics. The method is a “Group expert rally”, in which each expert group is assigned an inquiry task. This gives the students the opportunity to thoroughly analyze selected subtopics, communicate their results and absorb the material through discussion.

Information and ideas:
An interdisciplinary approach can be useful not only for scientific subjects, but also for English classes (for example, “develop argumentation techniques”) or for social studies/ethics/religion (for example, “Aid for victims of natural disasters”). The worksheet can also be used for project subjects such as “Renewable Energy Sources”.
