One Teacher's Inquiry-Based Learning Story

Veronica

Elementary Math Teacher

Queens, NY

The thing that most impressed me is how Room to Discover tailored their support to our needs and interests. They had a wealth of knowledge at their fingertips, and could provide insights into almost any educational topic.  

In just ten days, we learned strategies for classroom management, planning, and assessment, which allowed us to make Inquiry-Based Learning work for our students. When we asked for a resource they didn’t have, they helped us make our own!

Instead of telling us what to do, Room to Discover taught us by example. They made us feel comfortable and confident teaching Inquiry-Based Math.

Personalized learning allowed me to build my students up from where they were starting, so they could handle grade level work. As a result, they were more engaged, and their engagement led to higher achievement. 

I’ve been to some great workshops, but often felt overwhelmed using what I’d learned in my classroom. But our coach jumped in without missing a beat whenever I needed help. He even helped my students improve their communication and collaboration skills.

Our Process

We’ll help your team develop and implement inquiry-based learning experiences through a series of coaching cycles.

Prepare

First we conduct a school assessment and identify goals. Working closely with stakeholders, we develop a vision for success that supports teachers, students, and school leaders.

Plan

Next, we work with your team to develop a step-by-step plan for success. We identify teacher-leaders and help ensure resources and scheduling support your vision for growth.

Teach

We work side-by-side with your teachers to implement your program with fidelity. This step includes lesson planning, demo lessons and teacher coaching.

Reflect

Each cycle ends with a review of student artifacts and assessment data. Our reflections inform the direction of each successive program cycle.

Let us help you with your initiative

We’ll set your team up for success, addressing challenges before you even know they exist.
