Inquiry Based Learning
Inquiry based learning – promotes active learning in the classroom by engaging students in high level questioning practices. In classrooms that prioritize inquiry based learning, you will see students engaged in making real-world connections and problem solving through exploration and experiential learning. Inquiry based learning is more than just asking a curious question; it involves making thematic connections across disciplines and scaffolding the learning process for students to reach a deep, complex understanding of a given topic. Often, students are invited to “show what they know” through alternative assessments rather than through standardized assessments.
