An Eight Part K-8 Professional Development Workshop Series
Inquiry-based teaching, central to the National Science Education Standards and the Benchmarks for Science Literacy, should not be an isolated occurrence, but a comprehensive and ongoing approach. However, many teachers did not learn this way themselves, as children or during their preparation to become teachers. This eight-part workshop shows inquiry teaching and learning in action in real classrooms. Whether you have already experimented with inquiry teaching and want to enhance your practice, or are new to the approach, this workshop will show you how to make it work in the classroom and how it benefits students.
