Filed under: Uncategorized — librarypaula @ 2:17 am

When December rolls around this year, instead of winding down and spending the last few days keeping our students amused while they count down the hours until their Summer holiday’s start, Riccarton High School (Christchurch,New Zealand) is launching into the relatively unknown territory of Inquiry Learning, in a Secondary School setting.

Students from years 9 and 10 will work in their form classes, with the traditional 5 period day abolished for the days of the Inquiry.
In small groups, the students will investigate answers to questions they set around a themed topic for each year group.

Teachers and students will be limited only by time and their imaginations.
Students work can be presented in many formats … paper, poster,youtube, video, online ….
