Storyboard Text

  • I've heard about inquiry-based learning, but I don't know enough to try it myself. I need to find out more!
  • Inquiry is a team effort. As a teacher-librarian, I'm here to support you. What are your concerns?
  • I feel pressure to try inquiry with my students, but I don't feel prepared!
  • Inquiry takes so long! How will I find time for all the learning standards?
  • I've been trying mini-inquiries. They build inquiry skills, but only take a few hours.
  • And have you noticed that the new curriculum included inquiry-friendly standards?
  • I teach English 9, but I've been told inquiry should be cross-curricular.
  • I teach Science 9 in the same period. We could combine our classes in the library for a cross-curricular inquiry!
  • It can be, but it doesn't have to be.
  • I found that after giving students choice of inquiry questions, setting clear expectations, and helping them organize a work plan, everyone was engaged.
  • If I make students work in groups, won't some of them slack off?
  • I feel a lot better about inquiry now, but I'm still worried I'll make mistakes.
  • Good point! Thanks for your help!
  • That's okay! If you model how you learn from mistakes, that will help the students see that mistakes are part of learning!
