About the Talk
Through a visually rich delivery, Cindy shares 5 precepts for guided inquiry that are sure to support not just teachers new to the PYP but those who are experienced too. Beginning with the role of a teacher in guided inquiry, she leads into the 5 precepts – a. Knowing where you’re going and why, b. Explicitly teaching the ‘doing’ language, c. Supporting research, d. Making learning experiences authentic and e. Co-creating success criteria.
Diving into examples from her own classroom for each of the precepts, Cindy provides a foundational understanding of how you can make guided inquiry a reality in your classroom and for your students.
