Essential Questions are a key element in the Understanding by Design® curriculum planning framework. A good essential question serves as a doorway for engaging student inquiry in “uncovering” the curriculum, leading to deeper understanding. In this session, we will examine key ideas from Jay’s best-selling ASCD book, Essential Questions: Doorways to Student Understanding (McTighe and Wiggins, 2013).
