This one hour inquiry lesson is a chance to make huge impact in one class !
The formula consists of a) an emotionally engaging hook b) excellent inquiry sequences and c) class discussion
Students will begin by looking at an emotionally competent stimuli (ie. the selected image)
The teacher will then guide the students through the distinct steps of:
c) question formation
d) question selection
e) discussion of best selected questions
f) the final question selection by each student
This lesson flow has been tried and tested many times and I can basically assure you that now only will you have a completely fun class, but you can be confident in knowing that you are reinforcing the universally important thinking skills of observation, inference, and question formation. Best of all, this is all driven by the students curiosity and wonderment. Guided inquiry like this leads to student led inquiry, once they get the hang of it !
