Scale Lesson

I thought the lesson was good. I like how he drew on multiple intelligences. In his lesson there was science, math, literature, etc. I also appreciate the movement and hands-on activities because it drew my interest and allowed me to "see" my thinking.  I beleive that the lesson can promote inquiry, if students then develop other questions. As teachers then with a pacing schedule when do we allow students to answer these questions? Also what  if a student is not interested in the topic or did not  generate any  questions, is the lesson still inquiry? To be honest, it didn't generate any questions for me beyond the lesson. In the lesson, I questioned what I was doing and I was amazed by the dime walk but I didn't generate any inquiry outside the lesson.  So inquiry has to be student generated and come from their interest.
