Hmmm...How Do Our Questions Help Us Understand?

We have listened to H.G. Wells' "War of the Worlds" and read a text about Robert Falcon Scott's quest to claim Antarctica for Great Britain.  As we read, we asked questions to help us understand and connect with the text.  What questions did you have that might be worth discussing, or that might help bring us to better understanding?  You may also respond by telling us how questioning helped you better understand the text or radio program.  I'm looking forward to hearing what you think!


  1. One of my questions for the Falcon Scott story was, why did he want to have the South pole for Great Britain?
    Then one of my questions for War of the Worlds was, how did H.G. Wells get the idea to do this program? Also what did they do to make it so realistic?

  2. I was wondering how they all felt after hurting so many peoples lives if the process?

    I have one question form the story Scots quest to claim Antarctia. Why did they give up and go home? They were so close to Antarctia. They could have bee he first ones ther if they hadn't gone home. Them just giving up perplexed me.I know that i would not give up. I would just keep going no matter what.
