Product Description
How do you provoke deep thought and lively discussions? How do you provoke sustained inquiry? How do you get students to consider alternatives, weigh evidence, support their ideas, and justify their answers? By asking essential questions.

Common Core State Standards ask students to learn about characterization; you can create a context for an inquiry with an essential question as straightforward as “What makes a good friend?” You could focus on traits with a question like “What is courage?”

There are necessary elements to creating sound Essential Questions. Our checklist will ensure consistency and completeness. The beauty of the checklist is that you can literally check off what you have and what you need to add to create sound essential questions.

• You can also utilize our Essential Question Rubric to assist you with creating essential questions

• You can utilize our Essential Question Samples if you do not feel like creating your own
