with Jay McTighe and Grant Wiggins
The Reflective Educator: A Collaborative Approach profiles teachers working with administrators and coaches to take charge of their professional growth and move along the path to excellence by becoming reflective practitioners.
This video from ASCD provides practical advice about how teachers can transform instructional inquiry with essential questions that stimulate thought, provoke inquiry, and spark more questions.
This video brings the essential questions process to life with scenes from both a seminar taught by Wiggins and classrooms where teachers are successfully using essential questions in their instruction.
The best-selling book Essential Questions: Opening Doors to Student Understanding, by Jay McTighe and Grant Wiggins, is the basis for the new Essential Questions video from ASCD.
