Some good resources here for anyone who will be using the Appendix B text exemplars. They look a little less...dowdy with the supplementary info provided by EDSITEment.

Learners Should Be Developing Their Own Essential Questions

Learners Should Be Developing Their Own Essential Questions | Engaging Education with Common Core | Scoop.it

"Having essential questions drive curriculum and learning has become core to many educators' instructional practices.  Grant Wiggins, in his work on Understanding By Design, describes an essential quetion as:  

A meaning of “essential” involves important questions that recur throughout one’s life. Such questions are broad in scope and timeless by nature. They are perpetually arguable – What is justice?  Is art a matter of taste or principles? How far should we tamper with our own biology and chemistry?  Is science compatible with religion? Is an author’s view privileged in determining the meaning of a text? We may arrive at or be helped to grasp understandings for these questions, but we soon learn that answers to them are invariably provisional..."

So true... I cringe when I am in classrooms with the packaged program "essential question" of the week on the board...and very often those "essential questions" lack cognitive clarity for the students

Mary Reilley Clark's curator insight, January 8, 2014 1:33 PM

A great summary of why questioning still matters.  We've been talking about metacognition a lot this year in the library.  Learning how to develop questions is a large part of learning how you learn and think.

Stacey Jackowski's curator insight, February 19, 2014 8:20 PM

This quote is so true.  Learning how to ask essential questions is a skill that we can carry with us for the rest of our lives and facilitates a lifetime of learning.

"In other words, inquiry by design, not mere teacher rhetorical questioning, makes an EQ come to life and go into depth. The texts, prompts, rules of engagement, and final assessments provide the key elements needed for the design to succeed, in light of the just-noted criteria: an intriguing and key question, inherent ambiguity, clearly differentpoints of view, and shades of gray that will require careful questioning and discerning observation and research."

Working with Common Core and a Document Based Question (DBQ) iBook

Working with Common Core and a Document Based Question (DBQ) iBook | Engaging Education with Common Core | Scoop.it

My latest multi-touch iBook, Progress and Poverty in Industrial America, is available for your iPad - free / iTunes. It's a great resource for use in the classroom, and serves as a model for teacher or student curation of historic content into interactive digital DBQ's. (More on publishing with iBooks Author.)

 

This 18-page document-based question guides students through the historian's process with an investigation of the essential question, "How do we evaluate the social costs and benefits of technological innovations?" To make the question relevant to students, it begins with a brief examination of the impact of 21st c technologies / global economy on progress and poverty in contemporary America.

Where Essential Questions Come From

Where Essential Questions Come From | Engaging Education with Common Core | Scoop.it

"What does it mean to read? What does it mean to think? What does it mean to solve problems? What should you be doing in your head when you translate the Spanish? In sum, what is meant to be going on inside that black box called the mind and what is actually going on in their minds? These are our Essential Questions as teachers. It is the continual addressing of these questions that moves us from the ranks of the naïve and ok teachers to skilled professionals. We move from being “teachers” to coaches of learning."

If one goal of essential questions is to get our students to think a question we must ask is how do we go about teaching them do this. This post by Grant Wiggins explores ways to help students learn the necessary skills. Examples are provided and he also shares a book, "When Kids Can’t Read What Teachers Can Do" that provides resources.
