This workshop gives teachers tools they can use to grow a culture of inquiry in their classrooms. Participants will experience multiple questioning and inquiry strategies that they can use in their classrooms immediately. Engaging in scenarios on sometimes contentious topics but with clear expectations, participants will develop and practice their own inquiry skills. Learn how to pull profound thinking and problem solving from learners using questions to contextualize content and knowledge.
Why creating a culture of inquiry is so important
How to engage in ‘pull’ instead of ‘push’ teaching through rich inquiry
Develop and practice multiple inquiry strategies for classroom implementation
