Presentation Transcript

  1. Inquiry-based Learning What is it? and What does it look like? WMPeacock,2000

  2. What is it? • Inquiry-based learning is a curriculum strategy that assists students in developing: • content knowledge and skills • problem solving skills • collaborative skills • communication skills WMPeacock,2000

  3. What is it? • Inquiry-based learning is often called problem-based learning. • It allows students to • investigate a problem or question that arises from the content curriculum • access their natural curiosity about a subject • engage in active and authentic learning WMPeacock,2000

  4. What does it look like? • questions/problems to drive student research, • teachers become facilitators of learning, • students are solvers of questions/ problems, • students are given guidelines to investigation, but student inquiry drives discovery. WMPeacock,2000

  5. What does it look like? • Students are engaged in areas of interest. • Students use previous knowledge. • Students work collaboratively in teams. • Students engage in higher order thinking skills, analyzing and making judgments. • Students connect previous knowledge to new knowledge. • Assessment is authentic and performance-based. WMPeacock,2000

  6. What do the questions look like? • Questions are open-ended, • generate from natural curiosity around the content, • encourage more than one approach, • involve discrimination of information, and • build scaffold of learning and understanding. WMPeacock,2000

  7. What is the Process? • Students generate a question or problem. • In groups or individually, students organize prior knowledge and attempt to identify the nature of the question. • Students pose a question about what they do not understand. • Students design a plan to solve the problem and identify the resources they need. • Students gather information in order to answer the question. WMPeacock,2000
