Inquiry-Based Learning: Poster

For ECS 301, we were split into groups and asked to create a plan for an inquiry-based project that could be completed by middle years students.  Specifically looking at Mother Theresa’s Crabapple Jelly Project, we looked into the SK curriculum to see which outcomes could potentially be achieved over the span of the project.  We also identified some key learnings, how to differentiate the project, any challenges that could arise, and methods of assessment. This type of plan would be greatly beneficial for a teacher – inquiry-based projects have the potential to result in the unexpected (which sometimes might not be suitable to the students’ actual learning).  If a teacher identified outcomes that should be reached throughout the process, he/she would be better able to monitor the students’ growth, learning, and dedication.
