Topic: Deepening our understanding of Inquiry Practice: Looking to designing learning from children's questions.
(Appropriate for Early Childhood Learning and PreK-5 Educators)
In this learning walk you will consider the hallmarks of inquiry practice in an early learning setting and elementary rooms. In an Inquiry approach, students? questions, observations, teacher-selected images, recordings, etc. — provocations — guide and shape the learning path and experiences. Teachers are mindful of the ways that they document and analyze student learning to help plan forward.
Students lead the learning,while teachers guide and coach along the way. Inquiry is marked by discovery and the co-construction of knowledge. You will observe preschool and elementary classrooms (up to grade 5) and debrief the observations with teachers. Participants will create a plan for implementing a small inquiry process for their learners and school.
