If you've used traditional "I Can..." statements, then you will love the Essential Questions. Ideally, it's the same concept, except you will no longer be telling the kids what they're learning - now they have to figure it out themselves using the question! ....and that, is what it's all about with the Common Core State Standards!
The Essential Question Posters are aligned with the 4th Grade Reading Literature & Informational Text Common Core State Standards. They can easily be projected onto a smart board or printed in color, laminated, and posted daily.
The Essential Questions were designed to help guide your lesson and present the daily learning objective. They were written by taking the standards and turning them into questions. The Essential Questions could also be used in connection with an Exit Ticket to assess your students' understanding of the lesson and standard. After all, the questions for your exit ticket are already done for you!
The Essential Question Posters are color coded and include the following CCSS:
*Reading- Informational Text:
I have also included Informational Posters that go along with the following concepts: Themes, Elements of Poem/Prose/Drama, History/Science/Technical Texts, Text Structure, and Firsthand/Secondhand Accounts.

Happy Teaching from TN!
