This is a a wonderful program: check out Kathleen's notes

Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Don't miss this project that was designed by learners at The Inquiry Hub. The back story is that the learners wrote a grant so they could design and built this community garden. Here are some insights into The Inquiry Hub.


"The structure of the Inquiry Hub is around topics. In the morning, the teachers and learners start off with a topical workshop. Then the learners work on online courses guided by their teachers. In the afternoon they work on their inquiry project individually and/or collaboratively. Dave shared a topic that took a life of its own: The Green Inquiry Project where Shauna, Sophia, and Hanna wrote and received a wildlife grant as part of their environmental sustainability group."

Great model that could be replicated in the Learning Commons to empower students to own their inquiry.

I love the name "Inquiry Hub"...such a powerful way to help us all reimagine what a learning community can be if it's not a "school."

How Does Inquiry Mesh with the Common Core State Standards? Literacy

How Does Inquiry Mesh with the Common Core State Standards? Literacy | On education | Scoop.it

One step forward or two steps back?


Utah's English/Language Arts Core consisted of three strands: Reading, Writing, and Inquiry. With the adoption of the the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), teachers may ask how inquiry fits into CCSS or how the CCSS incorporates inquiry into its objectives.
