C3 and Inquiry in the Elementary Classroom
October 1 @ 9:00 am - October 2 @ 3:00 pm$200.00
This class will meet on October 1st and 2nd from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day. Lunch will be provided. Inquiry can be a fuzzy ideal. This workshop aims to help teachers become clear about the practice of inquiry by designing an inquiry using the Inquiry Design ModelTM (IDM). The IDM is a distinctive approach to creating instructional materials that honors teachers’ knowledge and expertise, avoids over-prescription, and focuses on the key elements of envisioned in the C3 Inquiry Arc. Unique to the IDM is the blueprintTM, a one-page presentation of the questions, tasks, and sources that define a curricular inquiry. The blueprint offers a visual snapshot of an entire inquiry such that the individual components and the relationship among the components can all be seen at once. We offer a 10-step design path for developing IDM inquiries for your classroom! In this 2-Day Workshop, we will work through the 10 steps and teachers will develop their own blueprint!
