Open Inquiry in the Science Classroom


With the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), its more important to move away from traditional cookbook labs to more inquiry-based learning that will provide our students with the critical thinking skills they will need to be college and career ready.  This workshop will show teachers how to make open inquiry work in the limited class time they have while satisfying the NGSS. We will model how to implement open inquiry as well as strategies to support the Common Core Learning Standards into your already existing curriculum.
