Inquiry Learnin g

As we all stated this morning, Inquiry Learning should not replace traditional educational practices, but complement it. Most teachers are using inquiry based learning in some way or another. It may not be the ideal version,but..... I do not consider myself as a fence sitter, and I am still enthusiastic about teaching, but I will admit with the Core Curriculum, it is getting harder& harder to implement inquiry learning. This symposium has encouraged me to re-try inquiry learning, BUT now I am switching from teaching science to teaching reading. I feel more confident with Inquiry Learn. in science than reading, BUT I promise to give it a try!
