Does “inquiry” leave you with questions? Guided Inquiry Design is a framework for designing inquiry learning developed by Kuhlthau, Maniotes, and Caspari for students of all ages. Regardless of what you teach, guided inquiry provides a framework that offers a way of teaching within a meaningful and integrated context so that students gain deep understanding of curriculum content while internalizing an inquiry process. In addition to these two types of learning, students will also be learning how to learn, social skills, and literacy competencies (Kuhlthau, Maniotes, Caspari, 8). Participants will explore the eight steps of guided inquiry and develop ways to apply the principles of guided inquiry in their own teaching. Whether you are working in a fixed or flex schedule, participants in this session will collect ideas and develop lessons that will help capitalize on students’ natural desire to ask questions and learn through inquiry.
