Pete has created a terrific lesson plan for teaching the word <know> that also demonstrates many of the practices and principles of Structured Word Inquiry, and includes a poignant example of the harm that can be done to children with false teaching. You can download An Inquiry-Led Investigation of <Know> here.

The lesson includes links to other documents. If you have trouble with those links, you can download the documents here:

Pete also had two great ideas to accompany this. One is for anyone who uses this lesson to post results, thoughts, pictures, videos, matrices, or any other artifacts of the lesson here as comments. The other is perhaps to coordinate a timeframe when teachers all over the world would teach this lesson -- a worldwide teach-in of <know>, so to speak. What do you think?
