"I would love to see a big stakes assessment give students a picture, story, or scenario and tell students -- “After reading this passage or viewing this picture, ask a question about it and then explain the importance or significance of your question.” Wow, that sure would be hard for the folks at ETS to score."
'Essential questions' are all too often lower order. And not that essential.
When we're working with schools on our Design Thinking School programme, one of the easiest ways to explain what we're looking for in the way a project is set, is whether the statement or questions being asked can be Googled easily: is this a Googleable or Not Googleable topic?
Provide your class with an initial piece of inspiration - a TED Talk, some objects, a provocative discussionGive students plenty of post-it notes to write one question per post-it in a short period of time - maybe 10-20 minutes.Ask students to post their questions onto a window or wall, under two headings: Googleable and NonGoogleableDiscussing what might constitute a NonGoogleable question to get some moreShare out the Googleable questions for independent researchGive time for students to present their answers to the Googleable questions to each other: students as teachersExplore the rich NonGoogleable questions as the basis of a rich project
