Do You have the Personality To Be an Inquiry-Based Teacher?

Do You have the Personality To Be an Inquiry-Based Teacher? | Education | Scoop.it

"As education crosses the divide between a transmission model and an inquiry model, a more pressing issue will be apparent: How do we identify, attract, nurture, and train teachers who have an “inquiry-friendly” personality?" Importance of building student-teacher relationships.

Lauren Cook's curator insight, December 13, 2013 12:32 PM

As a kindergarten teacher, you can teach AM, PM, and/or full day kindergarten. When I was younger I just took AM kindergarten, which was useful because I got used to waking up for school. The thing was I would leave after a few hours, this article showed the benefits of full day kindergarten. I dont think this would be a bad thing, because you are in school for full days the rest of the time in high school anyways. By being in school for longer that doesnt mean they just need to learn more math, science, and writing skills. But they can learn better how to work with other students, and social skills, just by being in the classroom environment for longer.
