15
Compelling and Supporting Questions
  • Compelling questions focus on real social
    problems, issues, and curiosities about how the
    world works
  • Intellectually meaty
  • Kid friendly
  • Examples
  • Was the American Revolution revolutionary?
  • Was the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s a
    success?
  • Why do we need rules?

16
Compelling and Supporting Questions
  • Supporting questions scaffold students
    investigations into the ideas and issues behind a
    compelling question.
  • Examples
  • What were the regulations imposed on the
    colonists under the Townshend Acts?
  • What legislation was enacted as a result of the
    Civil Rights Movement?
  • What are some rules that families follow?

17
DISCIPLINARY LITERACY
Literacies derived from the Common Core State
Standards in English language Arts/Literacy form
an essential thread required by the actual
demands of college, work, and civic life.
18
CIVIC ENGAGEMENT
Active and responsible citizens are able to
identify and analyze public problems, deliberate
with other people about how to define and address
issues, take constructive action together,
reflect on their actions, create and sustain
groups, and influence institutions both large and
small. They vote, serve on juries when called,
follow the news and current events, and
participate in voluntary groups and
efforts.  Teaching students to be able to act in
these waysas citizenssignificantly enhances
preparation for college and career.
