7/20 AM: What is Inquiry Pedagogy?

  • What does inquiry mean to you?  Asking the questions that envoke more questions, by the students as they seek answers; with the safety net that our objective is to get it more right and less not right.
  • How have you or how would you like to use inquiry-based education in your classroom?  75% of success with adults and children is by allowing them to discover the 'next steps' questions.  I simply prompt, 'what is the next step', consistantly.
  • What other classroom issues, stratagies or pedogogy are you interested in?  The most important component for me is to provide professional development empowering everyone to be on the same page, as we progress not necessarly knowing the next steps, yet realizing there are next steps...brainstorm with a goal in mind.
