Critical Questions:
  • What folders to we want to create? Why? What types of files do we want to keep in each folder?
  • Are there any files that do not belong?
Suggestions: Initially students can either free associate names of folders and files they want to create and save; in turn, select files to save in which folders. Using tiers or rows helps the student to visualize classifying and placement.
