How we can address diversity, varying student needs, and student interest? Inquiry is an incredible way to boost student engagement and create a student-centered classroom. And for teachers, the shift from “sage on the stage” to “lead learner” can be transformative in their instruction and relationship with their students. And if you’re new to inquiry, don’t sweat it. Part of this discussion is about how to dip your toes into this increasingly relevant and useful teaching practice.
This Live Discussion was moderated by Joe Schmidt, Senior Instructional Specialist at the Department of Social Studies, for the New York City Department of Education. Joining Joe for this discussion are Kim Heckart and Dr. LaMesha Craft. Both share their perspectives and ideas for Assessing Crafting Inquiry in short, recorded track talks.
