Inquiring about inquiry: Reading ‘IQ: A Practical Guide to Inquiry-based Learning’

I have started to do a little bit of research on the idea of inquiry-based classrooms. Although I have done many inquiry “units” in my class I am realizing that my teaching focused largely on guided inquiry. I think many teachers are wondering how we can move to more child-centred inquiry and still meet the curriculum expectations. Only three chapters in and I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I think working together is key. Teaching in isolation is always more challenging, but if more teachers begin to use the inquiry approach, the entire learning community benefits. I will send updates as my learning continues. So far, ‘IQ: A Practical Guide to Inquiry-based Learning’ is a promising resource.photo
