Concept Keys

Concept Keys


Concept Keys help us in the design of research questions. 

They help us change a skinny question into a fat question.

The inquiry concepts are:

  • Changes
  • Causes
  • Characteristics
  • Results
  • Compare
  • Conditions
  • Consequences
  • Adaptations
  • Functions
  • Relationship
  • Types
  • Structure
  • Importance
  • Purpose
  • Significance
  • Influence
  • Roles

We also have curriculum specific concept keys for History and Geography.  We use all these keys to unlock learning and to create our Big Question.
