Kathy Swan - The Wizard of Inquiry: Finding your Own Ruby Slippers

To unlock the mystery of inquiry one must go on an arduous journey…Only the truly gifted educator will be able to complete this odyssey. Hyperbole aside, social studies teachers might be experiencing fatigue as inquiry teaching and learning can sometimes be made to seem akin to reaching educational enlightenment. But, experience shows us that inquiry is how we learn best. Rather than thinking of inquiry as something new, we will spend time making current practices of inquiry visible. Then, we will spend time delving more deeply into the Inquiry Design Model (IDM) (http://www.c3teachers.org/idm) and the way in which the model helps to support both teachers and students engaged in inquiry.
