Criteria For Writing a Guiding Question


  1. The topic must interest you.

  2. Start the question with “How” or “What”

  3. Use strong verbs such as:  Affect. Impact, illustrate, motivate, influence, and communicate

  4. Is your question can be answered in a word or a sentence, it is not a guiding question.

  5. Goldilocks Rule: Can’t be too big or too small, must be just right.
