There is a big project coming up in one of Kat’s classes. She needs an idea to focus on, so she is trying to brainstorm and think of as many possible topics as she can, but she is having trouble thinking of fun ideas.

When you brainstorm, you write down or record many ideas. It doesn’t matter if they are good or bad ideas. A brainstorm is not a final choice. It’s just a way to think of as much as possible quickly. When do you brainstorm? Is it easy or difficult for you to think this way?
