Making it personal

In this hands-on workshop, we’ll cover how to use inquiry-based learning to increase student engagement in class. Effective teaching happens when our students are learning. Since they learn best by engaging with our lessons, it only makes sense that we make the lessons as personal as possible. We’ll learn how we can increase children’s engagement, attention and level of participation by scaffolding their inquiry process through provocations, brainstorming sessions, and conducting research. For those working with children aged 9 and younger.
