K-12 Overarching Enduring Understandings and Essential Questions

Overarching enduring understandings provide a conceptual foundation for all students. These statements focus on larger concepts or processes and the relationships that exist that foster transfer of discrete knowledge and skill. As these enduring understandings are written closer to the classroom and grade level, they become more specific and granular in levels of sophistication.

Essential questions prompt inquiry, transfer and, through a K-12 level lens, are more general in nature; providing the opportunity for students to answer the questions in progressively higher levels of sophistication as they progress through the grade levels.
