Good questions are at the heart of good inquiry. They should be higher-order, rich, worthy, essential and/or fertile. They are often open-ended (have no right or wrong answer) but are backed by subsidiary questions which are usually closed. Get the initial question right and the rest of the inquiry flows well.

In your groups, brainstorm five essential questions based on the topic ‘Appropriate use of Social Media’. You will then pick one question to choose as your essential question. After you have picked your essential question, each group will need to come up with a hypothesis for their question.
