Essential Questions

Essential questions foster the kinds of inquiries, discussions, and reflections that help learners find meaning in their learning and achieve deeper thought and better quality in their work.

  • They stimulate ongoing thinking and inquiry
  • They're arguable, with multiple plausible answers
  • They raise further questions
  • They spark discussion and debate
  • They demand evidence and reasoning because varying answers exist
  • They point to big ideas and pressing issues
  • They fruitfully recur throughout the unit or year
  • The answers proposed are tentative and may change in light of new experiences and deepening understanding

(McTighe & Wiggins, 2013)
