Kids’ Questions Matter! Inquiry to Read, Write, Research and Think

With an inquiry mindset kids can do anything! This session will show you how to teach students to ask good questions, conduct independent research and collaborate with peers to share their findings. Using a simple daily structure and a few great websites we help students plan for long term inquiry projects that they care about and want to pursue. Intended audience: K-6 Educators



We invite educators to continue to learn and grow with these resources. Discover and collect new ideas and examples relevant to you after viewing the session video and related resources. Take notes and reflect while you view so you can customize the techniques for your own remote learning and classroom needs and adapt the strategies for your students. Let these guiding questions support your reflective practice after viewing the session and/or reviewing of session materials:

  1. In what ways do you believe inquiry practices support remote learning and teaching goals and expectations?
  2. Which strategies for active inquiry practices resonated most with you and why? How do you see yourself incorporating them into your curriculum and instruction?
  3. Which ideas challenged you and/or excited you? What are your immediate next steps?
