What is inquiry?

Inquiry is a method in which teachers reflect on their practice, are able to question the way that they presently deliver curricula and put thoughts into new innovative lessons.  It is able to drive our ideas and wonderings as teaching professionals.  It moves the wonderings from the developmental stages of our sub-conscience, through various implementation stages within our classroom, into the pedagogy that further drives the inquiry.  The notion that we should pull apart  our own teaching and gives us the tools to question and then leads us to thinking about our own thinking.  The inquiry delves into the heart of what we do and takes it apart piece by piece, so that we can improve and develop our personal toolkits.  In our class we have our scientific group which drives our questions, so that the results may have pedagogical merit.  This makes us accountable to the wonderings that began the whole process and ultimately accountable to the students that we are teaching.

Inquiry = Wonderings + New ideas +Pedagogy + Theory The mistakes
