Inquiring Minds: Tackling the process of inquiry in the classroom

Inquiring Minds: Tackling the process of inquiry in the classroom | SearchTools | Scoop.it

Joyce Valenza's insight:

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!"

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.

Sandra Carswell's curator insight, April 28, 11:50 PM

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.
