Playback Speed:
Transcript

In this activity, your group will brainstorm club ideas in a shared document from your own computers. Then, you’ll discuss and select which ideas you like best and select one for your club. Brainstorming is a process for generating lots of ideas on a given topic or problem.

When you brainstorm, you are encouraged to think of and suggest as many ideas as possible.

You can either say your ideas aloud, or write them down. Brainstorming can be done alone or in a group and is a useful skill for school, work, and in life.

You could create a club for almost anything that you are interested in. Your club could be topics you know a lot about or like to do, like collecting vinyl records, bicycle repair, or making YouTube videos. Or it might be a cause that you care about, like recycling or volunteerism.

To start, each group member will sit at their own computer and open the shared document.

Next, have one of the group members add a title to the document. Make it bold so that it is easier to read. Next, brainstorm ideas for a new club. Each member of your group will write at least five ideas in the shared document, but your group may brainstorm more.

After brainstorming ideas, take a few minutes to talk as a group about all of the different ideas that the group thought of.

When you’ve decided on a topic, have someone highlight the idea that your group wants to create a club about.

Great job! When you’re finished, move on to the next video to organize your spreadsheet. Now, it’s your turn: Open the shared document at your own computer, Add a title to a document, Brainstorm and add at least five new club ideas per group member, Review and discuss the ideas as a group, And highlight the idea your group likes best.
