Driving Question to Facilitate Student Inquiry and Common Core

Driving Question to Facilitate Student Inquiry and Common Core | Future readings or ponderings | Scoop.it

"I really like Driving Questions. In fact, I like them so much more then Essential Questions. You might ask why? I think it just might be my affection for the revised Bloom’s Taxonomy. You may remember that in the revision the different levels were changed into action."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 18, 2013 10:04 PM

In this post Gorman explains why he likes driving questions and how they differ from essential questions. He states "they allow students to work together in the amazing process of divergent thinking." 

Gorman also notes that it is difficult to create good driving questions (and one might say the same can be true with essential questions). The image above looks at questions asked in "educationese" and how one might translate that to a driving question.

In addition he provides links to quite a few resources that include:

* A resource that looks at concepts of the driving question

* A variety of resources on Project Based Learning, including how to craft a driving question (which also includes a video)

* Practice with driving questions

Trying to teach kids as much as they can learn is often part of the way that we care about them most. People are drawn into teaching for a lot of reasons, but those who stay, stay for one reason above all: caring about the kids.

With Common Core State Standards, Why Service Learning Matters Even More

Allison Hylton's curator insight, December 4, 2013 4:45 PM

Anyone skeptical about incorporating service learning into the classroom because of the “constraints” of the CCSS would should read this article. In this web article, authors Cathryn Berger Kaye and Maureen Connolly write about the intersection of the Common Core State Standards and service learning.  The article uses the CCSS outline of the seven “Capacities for the Literate Individual” to explain how service learning and engagement helps students to reach these seven targeted skills and behaviors.  To do this they break down service learning into five stages and work to explain what elements of growth and learning take place within these stages.  The article concludes with a brief explanation of why service learning matters, which in their opinion is to bring the CCSS “to life.”
