Product Review of The Knowledge Compass
The Knowledge Compass is a website designed to help learners create powerful questions to guide their inquiry or research. Students can choose from ten question types to begin developing their research question: 5WS questions, inquiry questions, the question matrix, Socratic questions, ME questions, 5E questions, habits of mind, Six Thinking Hats, convergent questions, and divergent questions. Each question type includes an explanation and steps for the learner to take to craft their research question. This website is particularly useful in science, but can also be applied to literacy, history, and social studies classes or anywhere that learners engage in inquiry or research.
