“Inquiry ... requires more than simply answering questions or getting a right answer. It espouses investigation, exploration, search, quest, research, pursuit, and study. It is enhanced
by involvement with a community of learners, each learning from the other in social interaction.”
(Kuklthau, Maniotes & Caspari, 2007, p. 2)
(Ontario Ministry of Education, 2013, p. 1)
There is a new Ministry Monograph entitled: "Inquiry-based Learning: On Transforming Wonder into Knowledge" that a colleague emailed to me.
Unfortunately, I have not been able to locate it online for you, but thought that I would bring it to your attention!
It was published this past May, so I am sure that you will be able to download it here soon:
Otherwise, please enjoy all of the other Ministry Monographs that are posted!
Some of my personal favourites are:
- Writing to Learn
- Pedagogical Documentation
- The Third Teacher
- Getting Started with Student Inquiry
- Parent Engagement
- Maximizing Student Mathematical Learning in the Early Years
- Collaborative Teacher Inquiry
- Integrated Learning in the Classroom
Happy Friday to all! :)
