What are "essential questions," and how do they differ from other kinds of questions? What's so great about them? Why should you design and use essential questions in your classroom? Essential questions (EQs) help target standards as you organize curriculum content into coherent units that yield focused and thoughtful learning. In the classroom, EQs are used to stimulate students' discussions and promote a deeper understanding of the content. Whether you are an Understanding by Design (UbD) devotee or are searching for ways to address standards--local or Common Core State Standards--in an engaging way, Jay McTighe and Grant Wiggins provide practical guidance on how to design, initiate, and embed inquiry-based teaching and learning in your classroom. Offering dozens of examples, the authors explore the usefulness of EQs in all K-12 content areas, including skill-based areas such as math, PE, language instruction, and arts education. As an important element of their backward design approach to designing curriculum, instruction, and assessment, the authors *Give a comprehensive explanation of why EQs are so important; *Explore seven defining characteristics of EQs; *Distinguish between topical and overarching questions and their uses; *Outline the rationale for using EQs as the focal point in creating units of study; and *Show how to create effective EQs, working from sources including standards, desired understandings, and student misconceptions. Using essential questions can be challenging--for both teachers and students--and this book provides guidance through practical and proven processes, as well as suggested "response strategies" to encourage student engagement. Finally, you will learn how to create a culture of inquiry so that all members of the educational community--students, teachers, and administrators--benefit from the increased rigor and deepened understanding that emerge when essential questions become a guiding force for learners of all ages.

Going well beyond the common view of those interested in improved living, it moves the reader to seriously re-commit themselves to their spiritual life. Humanhood is not spiritual life, and that distinction is well-made in Beca Lewis' insightful book. It could be read and used for inspiration, though its great contribution is transformation, which will occur when you read it slowly, reflect on it fully, and move forward only when you hear what Beca calls "the good voice." I believe this book can be the turning point for anyone wanting to do more than simply find a formula to get what is wanted. It will cause you to question everything...pun definitely intended. Read it!" - Rhoberta Shaler, PhD, Founder of Sow Peace International, author of Wrestling Rhinos: Conquering Conflicts In The Wilds Of Work"Beca Lewis has written a thoughtful and deeply felt spiritual guide to dissolving the material habits that keep us from our spiritual nature. It is a calming meditation that will help you move through the daily cacophony to a place of deep inner peace and love. Bravo, Beca! Thank you for this." - Chellie Campbell, author of The Wealthy Spirit and Zero to Zillionaire"Beca Lewis has found a road map to navigate our mental highways, bringing resolution to what we desire in life: harmonious relationships, satisfying work and wealth, as well as spiritual enrichment.
