This grade one/two class started a "Curiosity Notebook" and immediately developed many interesting questions! They also made a list of ways to find out information with one student suggesting that they only need to..."Ask the teacher, she knows everything!"
|Teachers sharing and learning|
As a group of teachers interested in finding out about inquiry-based teaching, we continue to meet to discuss our learning. The Curiosity Notebook posted above, was developed by the teacher after she read chapter 8 from "Inquiry Circles in Action, Comprehension and Collaboration" by Stephanie Harvey & Harvey Daniels. Another teacher, started a Wonder Board to list all the "wonders" of her grade one students. In the grade 5/6 class, we started with an Inquiry Notebook for each student. As they work through mini-inquiries, the students track their thinking and list their curiosities.
