Inquiry Based Literacy

Students learn how to:

  • Formulate relevant, self-generated questions based on interests and/or needs that can be investigated.
  • Transact with texts to formulate questions, propose explanations, and consider alternative views and multiple perspectives.
  • Construct knowledge, applying disciplinary concepts and tools, to build deeper understanding of the world through exploration, collaboration, and analysis. 
  • Synthesize information to share learning and/or take action.
  • Reflect throughout the inquiry process to assess metacognition, broaden understanding, and guide actions, both individually and collaboratively.
