- Teaching and Learning Through Inquiry with Kath Murdoch
Teaching and Learning Through Inquiry with Kath Murdoch
In this practical workshop, participants have the opportunity to clarify their understanding of what it really means to use an inquiry based approach to teaching and learning in the primary / elementary classroom. Over two interactive days, teachers examine the essential elements of inquiry and how these elements can be 'brought to life' through quality planning, use of materials, choice of teaching strategies and interactions with students. Participants explore the conditions that best 'set the scene' for productive inquiry learning and the way in which we can be 'inquiring teachers' throughout our classroom program as well as within the context of inquiry-based 'units of work.' In addition to demonstrating many useful teaching strategies for the inquiring classroom, Kath takes teachers through her widely-used model for planning and teaching inquiry and shows how it can be adapted to builds students' understandings and interdisciplinary skills - particularly in the areas of thinking, collaboration, self management, research and communication. Practical examples from a wide range of settings are shared with teachers and they also have the opportunity to frame up plans to use back in their classroom.
