Over the last year, since the 'Next Chapter' in MYP, I have been trying my hardest to understand and develop ideas about inquiry in the classroom. I have personally asked many questions about the way I teach and how I can incorporate inquiry into my classes.
I sometimes find it hard to include inquiry into every lesson and feel that lessons have aspects where you have to lead the students towards your objectives. I do not believe classes should be content driven but there are times when important fundamental skills need to be taught or demonstrated for students to understand how to implement their ideas of skill.
'The Power of asking the right questions' by Georgia K Mathis approaches this topic and has helped me think even more about how I can use #inquiry in my classes.
The youtube video below show this in action at Wildwood IB World Magnet School.
How do you include inquiry in the classroom? Do you do it all the time? Is it an important part of the learning in your classes?
I have been writing for nearly five years on and off in the world of twitter, facebook groups, blogging and sharing ideas thoughts with the wider physical education world.
