Inquiring Minds: Tackling the process of inquiry in the classroom

Inquiring Minds: Tackling the process of inquiry in the classroom | Information for Librarians | Scoop.it
In a story last year about Tony Wagner, author of The Global Achievement Gap, they quote him as saying, “The culture of schooling as we know it is radically at odds with the culture of learning that produces innovators.” We can tell you the kinds...

Sandra Carswell's insight:

This method of using inquiry to drive student investigations into topics of interest around a theme or historical event would be a great way to teach and learn.

If you've ever needed a beautiful example of the process of turning your classroom into a culture of learning through inquiry, this is it. I love how the kids were initially afraid to ask too many questions for fear they would turn into gargantuan assignments. This article could turn into a pretty exciting PD session...

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 25, 3:00 PM

Students asking questions is vital and helps them examine information critically. We used a William Isaacs' term, mining for questions, in our classrooms.

Joyce Valenza's curator insight, April 28, 7:43 AM

Tracie Weisz focuses on inquiry.

"Have I quit assigning essays? No! However, instead of saying at the beginning that everyone will write one, I now wait and see where their inquiry goes. If they are culminating in something that really lends itself to an essay, I’ll suggest it, and they very often can see the sense in presenting their findings this way by that stage. But I’m also open to other ideas for presenting. Teaching this way has the added benefit of being much more interesting for me – it’s common during an initial inquiry session that I get as much into the questioning and discussion as they do!"

10 Steps For Pre-Search Strategies... Digital Literacy Series Part 1
Sharon Murdoch's curator insight, March 4, 8:40 AM

There are those who believe that, because of the wealth of information available on the internet, the importance of the librarian is diminished.  On the contrary, teaching digital literacy is an important role of the school librarian.

 

Sandra Carswell's curator insight, March 5, 11:57 PM

Steps in pre-search to help students develop their research questions. How often do we skip this, just give them the topic and move on for lack of time?

15 Amazing Web Tools Facilitating Pre-Search Strategies… Digital Literacy Series Part 2

15 Amazing Web Tools Facilitating Pre-Search Strategies… Digital Literacy Series Part 2 | Information for Librarians | Scoop.it

by Michael Gorman

 

"Last time we reflected on the idea of the internet being an amazing place filled with a wealth of information. I addressed what I feel are ten important pre-search strategies when beginning research with students.  You can read about these strategies in the prior post. In this post, I wish to build on  the steps outlined earlier. I would like to introduce some tools that can be used to help facilitate the pre-search period of time with students. By understanding the need for pre-search one can see how these tools, some of which you may already know, can be used in a different way to help students as they get ready to research.  Please enjoy the tools and let me know of other that I can include in a future post."
