Essential Questions

HITS Strategy

The learning target is introduced through the Essential Question. 


  • Are provocative to foster inquiry, understanding and transfer of learning.
  • Are developed directly from the Key Skill being taught as determined by the F-10 Victorian Curriculum and VCE/VCE VM Study Design. 
  • Are three pronged questions that begin with: What, How, Why

It is very likely that one essential question will be taught for a number of lessons.
