“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn” – Benjamin Franklin
We are very excited to broaden the teacher inquiry initiative to include student inquiry for the 2013/ 2014 school year. If you teach students in Math or Science, grades 9- 12, and are excited or curious about applying aspects of student inquiry into your classroom then you will have the opportunity to be part of this exciting initiative.
We will be offering a kick off dinner followed by three collaborative afternoon sessions where you will have to opportunity to work with peers to develop an understanding of student inquiry and engage in collaborative planning and reflective discussions.
Dates & Times:
All sessions will run from 1:00pm- 3:30pm at the Station House Pub, 737 Goldstream Ave, Victoria, BC V9B 2X4
*Open afternoon to use as needed. Just contact Dawn with the date.
- Here is a General grading rubric for inquiry projects, I use it for my Math class. If students request a percentage, which is uncommon, you can convert the 4 point scale to a 10 point scale and percentage using the grading and conversion sheet below.
