Inquiry Curriculum Implementation Workshops

Teacher with balance

Onsite Implementation Workshops are grade–specific and designed for teachers new to the Inquiry Project curriculum. These workshops help teachers to become familiar with the curriculum's goals, central concepts, investigations, and materials. Participants gain firsthand experience doing the investigations to get a feel for how students learn through inquiry. By the end of the workshop, participants have a solid grasp of the curriculum’s overarching conceptual story and core teaching strategies.

Implementation workshops are designed for six hours of study. The workshop can be implemented as one six–hour professional development day or in two three–hour professional development sessions. These sessions might be coordinated by the district, school, or by grass–roots teacher study groups.
