Use an Essential Question to Fuel the InquiryAn essential question can be a very effective tool for guiding research and tapping into students' enthusiasm for inquiry and learning. These questions provide students with challenges that allow them to invest in the learning process as they make decisions about their own learning. Since essential questions do not have one correct answer, students can choose flexible learning paths to find success and demonstrate learning.
