The Inquiry Continuum: Engaging Learners through Teacher-Directed and Student-Directed Inquiry

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There is growing consensus that greater student engagement leads to greater student achievement (Cummins, et al.,2005; Flessa et al., 2010; Leithwood, McAdie, Bascia, & Rodrigue, 2006; Willms, Friesen, & Milton, 2009). Research suggests that students are more likely to develop as engaged, self-directed learners in inquiry-based classrooms (Jang, Reeve & Deci, 2010; NCREL online). 

In this session, participants will learn about the inquiry continuum from teacher-directed to student-teacher-directed inquiry. Understanding the inquiry continuum will help teachers feel comfortable with inquiry and understand how inquiry empowers students, yet can look very different depending on the discipline and the learning targets.
