As a school community, you have made the intentional choice to prioritise inquiry. Yay! As inquiry-based educators, we believe in empowering students with tools and skills to solve problems in their lives. This type of learning definitely does not stop when students leave our classrooms. Families play a major role in developing young inquirers. What happens at home lays the foundation of prior knowledge, experiences, and beliefs that students bring forward into every inquiry! So, how do we get everyone on the same page about the unique needs of an inquiry-driven student?

This ready-to-use 1 hour workshop presentation explores the pedagogy of inquiry and invites participants to engage with the school curriculum.

In this family workshop, we will explore: 

  • Why is inquiry important? 
  • What does inquiry-driven learning look like in practice? 
  • What their child is learning now and how might parents support this at home?
