Inquiry Learning

As a State and District our NECAP Science Data continues to point to the need to increase and improve the inquiry skills of students.  Many questions come to mind approaching a strategy to address closing this 'inquiry' gap.  Click on the title to read about  5 Tools to Help Students Learn How to Learn all focused on inquiry. To wet your whistle, the opening paragraph is found below. Let's start a conversation about inquiry and learning!


"Helping students learn how to learn: That’s what most educators strive for, and that’s the goal of inquiry learning. That skill transfers to other academic subject areas and even to the workplace where employers have consistently said that they want creative, innovative and adaptive thinkers. Inquiry learning is an integrated approach that includes kinds of learning: content, literacy, information literacy, learning how to learn, and social or collaborative skills. Students think about the choices they make throughout the process and the way they feel as they learn. Those observations are as important as the content they learn or the projects they create."
