Inquiring Minds Want to Read and Write: Framing Curriculum and Instruction as Inquiry
This interactive workshop will pursue 4 strands:
- What is inquiry and why does this structure engage and assist learners?
- How can we reframe units we already teach into inquiry-oriented pursuits through the use of “Big” or “Essential” Questions?
- How can we use backwards planning to teach towards meaningful culminating projects and compositions?
- How can we effectively design assignment sequences framed by inquiry through using frontloading and sequencing techniques?
Workshop starts at 12:30 p.m.
