This course is one of a three-part series entitled Inquiry Driven Education. Inquiry-based education awakens curiosity, wonder, and purpose in our students. In addition, it elicits the evidence that we need to demonstrate our students’ skills and their understanding of the new standards. By taking the three courses in this series, you will learn how to create classrooms that instill in students the drive for inquiry and innovation that they will need to succeed beyond the school doors. The other two courses in the series are:
- EDUO 9750: Introduction to Inquiry
- EDUO 9751: Engagement, Implementation, & Assessment
Although the other two courses in the series are NOT prerequisites for this course, they do provide a foundation for it. This class requires the book titled Inquiry and Innovation in the Classroom by A.J. Juliani. It is available for purchase at www.amazon.com.
In the class Innovative Strategies EDUO 9752 you will learn strategies that can easily be implemented in the classroom to make your students more creative, inquisitive, self-motivated, and engaged in learning.
