In this session, we’ll explore the concepts behind inquiry-based learning, and use a 3-part workshop model to create inquiry-based activities for any grade level and subject area:
Inspire: Workshop lessons start with generating interest. We’ll explore how activating prior knowledge and connecting to real-world applications primes students for exploratory learning.
Inquire: In this part of the lesson, we give students questions to answer and problems to solve. When the activity is well-designed, the teacher supports students by providing resources and asking questions.
Reflect: After each inquiry-based task, students need time to reflect and solidify learning. We’ll explore several reflective activities that will boost comprehension and retention.
By the end of this session, you will be prepared to lead your first inquiry-based lesson online. Session includes access to planning resources and digital materials to ensure your students’ success!
