Product Description
When students' instruction is organized around meaningful, clear questions, writes Jim Burke in What's the Big Idea? they understand better, remember longer, and engage much more deeply and for greater periods of time. Jim shows how teaching with essential questions eases the tension between good teaching and teaching to the test, while giving students dependable, transferable tools for reading, writing, thinking, and the real world. Going in depth on his own units, Jim shows how to plan lessons, units, and even entire courses around big ideas.
