I'm pretty sure this means there was NCCE planning going on in 5+ timezones today! :)

As I get ready for the annual phys ed/library/music collaborative IEFA Super Unit, I want to share a great song by in case any of middle/high school history/gov/soc studies colleagues felt inspired to integrate it into their teaching

Think of it this way - how much of a struggle and how many times did you mess up before you figured out how to ride a bike? But you learned. And the learning was hard but at the same time so incredibly rewarding.

A8 Out of sight, out of mind. If you have quality EQs to work with, print out a copy and stick them where you see them daily. Use that to help you frame your approach daily. I have a set of "big picture" things I believe that I do the same with.

Q6 Beyond the advantages of a well-written standards and curriculum, I think it is always useful to think about how all these parts fit together in lessons, then units, then courses, then horizontal and vertical alignment, etc.

Most certainly. If any of this was easy, we wouldn't need to keep reinventing it!!!

A5: I didn't generally involve Ss when I was in the classroom, but I would get feedback from them after a unit, and that would help me fine tune them. My fellow coaches and I have included teachers in developing EWs for workshops.

The name itself is silly... to much a mouthful to say!

A5 This not easy, nor is it always a productive exercise, but, I think you need to start with... "why do you care about this?" Content experts waxing poetically about their life's work often get to the point of EUs, and then you can get to EQs.

A4 Generally speaking, embrasing the "essential." It is a bigger question, and not about the nitty-gritty of the content level.

Absolutely! There is a lot of template (cookie cutter?)-based standards and curriculum out there; if you are writing an EQ to check off a box on a form? Sure... you can write less-than-clear EQs.

Related, the best essential questions could/should be shared with students... assuming they shed light as opposed to obscure. :) I've seen it both ways. :D

A1 I like to think of it as a way to help frame the narrative of the standards. No content lives out of context, nor should lessons.
