               2. Why Essential Questions for
                     Critical Thinking?
                             Key Points
1.   Most teachers assign students shorter mini-research activities
     that are topical and focused on facts only
2.   Topical assignments don’t motivate or generate critical thinking
     and original thought
3.   Scientific research on learning indicates that critical thinking is
     necessary for motivation and permanent vs. rote learning
4.   All effective inquiry-based learning activities integrate essential
     questions for critical thinking
5.   The best guide for teachers to use in creating critical thinking
     strategies and questions is the Bloom Taxonomy
6.   Bloom Taxonomy and essential questions for critical thinking
     are integrated into all ProQuest models and guides
                  2. Why Essential Questions for
                        Critical Thinking?

 needs to be             global               causes?
   done?                warming?
                                                               What problems
                                                               are caused by
                                                              global warming?


  What barriers                    Topic =
   are there to                                               How effective are
   solving the               Global Warming                     the present
    problem?                                                    prevention
                                                                strategies?

  How do we
  know global                    What                            What is the
   warming
    exists?                    would you                        government
                                                               doing about it?
                               do about it
                               and why?

Note: Each student in a team can be assigned one of the essential questions.
                3. Why eLibrary & BookCarts?


                             Key Points

     essential questions in a complete digital lesson plan
2.   Customizes resources for ALL student ability levels based on
     Lexile reading scores for articles
3.   Copy/Adapt the ProQuest collection of 700+ models to save time,
     work, and ensure effective learning for students
4.   Students can access BookCarts for learning from both home and
     school
5.   Create BookCart learning activities in teams for each course
     during in-service and share them across the school district
6.   Select resources from 8 media types including visually rich
     website favorites, multimedia, maps, and pictures
                  3. Why eLibrary & BookCarts?

                       4. Why Use ProQuest Models for
                    Student Presentations and Reports?

                               Key Points

1.   Need for inquiry-based learning increasing because of the Information
     Age and the inability of textbook learning to keep pace
2.   Access to online databases and the Internet in schools has increased
     the ease and effectiveness of frequent and shorter assignments
3.   Most school research models apply to long and formal written term
     papers, NOT shorter, more frequent reports--mini-research
4.   Most mini-research activities are assigned to ALL students (unlike
     term papers for college prep) and are generally 150-200 words
5.   Many teachers have little experience or effective models for students
     to present researched information that integrates critical thinking
6.   Teachers are also looking for models of new ways for students to
     present their research in addition to written reports
                   4. Why Use ProQuest Models for
                Student Presentations and Reports?

       Assessment Activities with Links to Learning Resources

                5. How Do I Evaluate Student
                Reports & Presentations?
                             Key Points

1.   Most teachers have little experience in evaluating student written
     reports, presentations, and projects
2.   Teachers generally use multiple choice testing for assessment
     with its emphasis on % of “correct answers”
3.   Student inquiry-based activity reports and presentations that
     depend on the use of critical thinking can’t be evaluated
     effectively using the “correct” assessment method
4.   Mini-research evaluation methods must be focused on process
     and the critical thinking skills utilized
5.   Critical thinking is employed from the search for information,
     through analysis, synthesis, and reporting reasoned conclusions
6.   Flexible rubrics tools that focus on process, provide the best
     method for evaluating Inquiry-based activities
              5. How Do I Evaluate Student
              Reports & Presentations?

     check to see if you received credit?
3.   Did you fill in the final program evaluation checklist form in the
     Teacher Guide and give it to the coordinator?
4.   Would you or other teachers benefit from additional BookCart
     and QuizCart training? Have your librarian arrange it.
5.   Have you considered leading a team BookCart building and
     sharing for your department as an in-service activity?
