The inquiryHub lessons engage students in practices where they investigate, make sense of phenomena and problems, construct and critique models, and develop explanations and arguments. The units are designed to support students in becoming more sophisticated in their use of practices over the school year.
We recognize that teachers may be new to this storyline approach and the practice of presenting problems before students have had a chance to learn core ideas. Implementation resources can be found in The Front Matter of each course curricula, and the Front Matter for each unit. For teachers and schools who desire more in-depth support in implementing the inquiryHub curriculum, we offer several types of workshops. All professional learning workshops provide teachers the opportunity to experience the curriculum as a student, working together to figure out explanations of phenomena and solutions to problems, and involves a deeper study of navigation routines, discourse, and assessment.
