  • All types of questions have their place, especially higher order thinking questions.

  • EQs will be helping our students answer the questions of life.

  • We are working toward being able to ask questions to require deeper thinking that requires students to take what they know and what they are given and apply this knowledge across to other subject areas and the world.

  • EQs and targeted understanding go hand in hand.


What you had to say1
What You Had to Say…

  • All questions are essential, but some questions lead to other questions, which makes those more powerful.

  • Essential Questions are an “umbrella” rather than a daily target.

  • I loved really thinking about the 7 characteristics of E.Q.’s. I also loved the 3 types of nonessential questions and how they can connect to E.Q.’s

  • The parts of an eq…apply to life, thought provoking, relate to life, standards build up to them.

  • The difference between EQs and non-EQs.

  • Divide participants into four to six jigsaw groups. The exact number of groups will depend upon the number of parts into which you divide the lesson.

  • Give each participant within each group one part of the lesson, usually a text. It is this one part of the lesson on which he/she will become an expert.

  • Allow time for participants to read and become familiar with that text on their own.

  • Create “expert groups” by having all participants who are reading the same text. During this meeting, participants raise any questions they have, highlight the key findings in their text, and discuss what they will share when they return to their original jigsaw group.

  • Have the facilitator ask each participants to share his/her expertise with the group, allowing time for clarifying questions. Participants should be taking notes on each other’s presentations. The timekeeper should ensure that no one person dominates the group.
