  6. 6. What is question driven teaching?<br /> The use of questions as a curricular framework<br />Instruction that . . .<br />focuses on big ideas and enduring questions over<br /> extended periods of time to add depth and rigor to the<br /> curriculum.<br />is organized around “essential” higher-level questions that provoke multiple perspectives to help students understand “big ideas” and to help them shape the way they think critically for themselves<br />
  7. 7. Using questions to . . .<br />Prepare and help students in effective classroom discussion<br />Connect what they learn themselves, the world, and other texts<br />Clarify, extend, assess, and deepen understanding<br />Organize instruction <br />(p. 18)<br />
  8. 8. Pick one: Consider what it would require to fully answer it.<br />

  13. 13. “I have concluded that in a flat world, IQ- Intelligence Quotient – still matters, but CQ and PQ – Curioity Quotient and Passion Quotient – matter even more. I live by the equation CQ+PQ>IQ. Give me a kid with a passion to learn and a curiosity to discover and I will take him or her over a less passionate kid with a high IQ every day of the week” (p.304)<br />
  14. 14. Sir Ken Robinson<br />

  16. 16. Darling-Hammond’s principles of learning:<br />1.) Prior knowledge of students must be addressed<br />2.) Students need to organize and use knowledge conceptually if they are to apply beyond the classroom.<br />3.) Students need to understand how they learn and how to manage their own learning.<br />How do the relationships in our lives shape our values and actions?<br />
