There are four main types of question frameworks:

Generative frameworks which facilitate students formulating questions

Essential questions/big questions that frame the inquiry

Process question frameworks that guide each stage the inquiry cycle/process

Evaluative questions that guide the critical evaluation of sources (data & information, primary & secondary sources)

Assignment 2

In Assignment 2 you will need to address the following questions in your unit design:

  • How do students generate inquiry questions relating to their topic? (see Essential questions & Generative frameworks)
  • How do students develop their question-asking skills? (see Generative frameworks)
  • What sorts of questions do students ask to critically evaluate information/sources/data? (see GeSTE windows)
  • What sorts of questions do students use to evaluate their process/methodology? (see Process frameworks)
