This is a great article, but just wanted to point out that, "So if Columbus came knocking on your door and told you that sailing to the New World would be an amazing adventure and there might be lots of riches there, but you might never arrive because the world was flat, would you go?" is not an open ended question. Yes, it is long and imaginative, but it is a close ended question. Open ended would offer a chance for a similarly imaginative response. Something like, 'So if Columbus came knocking on your door and told you that sailing to the New World would be an amazing adventure and there might be lots of riches there and he wanted you to be his first mate. How would you prepare for the journey? What would you study to make sure you made it to the new world?' etc...
Again, enjoyed the article, thanks for writing it.
