Inquiry-based Learning

Follow two teachers as they explore and learn about inquiry learning. 


Join us as we investigate how to implement inquiry-based learning in our grade 5/6 classroom (grade 4/5  - 2013/2014). We've added a new tab on our website that is connected to the work we are doing in inquiry to support the curriculum roll-out of the "New Ontario Revised Social Studies, History & Geography" (2013) document. This document focus' on the inquiry process and concepts of disciplinary thinking. We are pleased to have the opportunity to be a part of the roll-out team for the Ministry of Education.
