Have you wanted to increase your students’ inquiry skills? Are you looking for a new way to engage with your educator partners to bring this about? Have you wondered how to get your administrator(s) to embrace an inquiry culture throughout your school community?
Then please consider joining me in developing actionable steps to create a culture of inquiry for your school library and community. Starting March 29, I will be facilitating a 4-week AASL eCourse on just that.
In this course you will:
- Use a design thinking protocol to answer the wicked question, “How do I create an inquiry culture within my school?”
- Develop strategies that demonstrate integration of Inquire Competencies and Alignments with district curriculums.
- Design an action plan to create buy-in from stakeholders and cultivate a school-wide culture of inquiry.
During these four weeks together, we will be working on developing an inquiry unit that integrates the Inquire Learner Competencies with your district’s goals and curriculum, and we will work together to develop an advocacy plan to engage your stakeholders in developing a school-wide culture of inquiry. We will be using Google classroom and Zoom meetings to aid in these action steps.
The course begins March 29 and runs through April 23. Zoom meetings will be on Monday evenings during the course at 6:00 p.m. CT to set objectives, answer questions, and engage dialogue within a culture of inquiry.
I hope you will want to be a part of this course helping to create or enhance your school’s culture of inquiry. Visit the AASL Learning Library to learn more about this course
