Welcome Back Teachers! I am looking forward to an amazing 2016. I hope to get a chance to support each of you as we make our way to June. The next few months are going to be busy over here in Coaches Corner. This month, I will be following up with teachers whom participated in our December 3rd professional development on Inquiry-Based Labs. I will be observing the lab in their classrooms and debriefing about how much learning was taking place. On February 3rd, we will meet again as a whole group and discuss the impact these types of labs had on the learning process. Did using inquiry engage your students throughout the unit ? Were students intrinsically motivated to learn more on their own? Did students enjoy learning this way? Did the teachers enjoy teaching this way? These are some of the questions we will address at our next meeting, as well as any challenges to inquiry-based learning. Here are a few pictures of students in Mrs. Roseli's class at Hollencrest as they explore the effect of adaptations on the survival of a species.
