Reflection on the Inquiry Based Classroom: EDIM 513 (u07a2)

Throughout this class I have learned that I use many aspects of inquiry based learning in my classroom on a daily basis.  I believe inquiry comes naturally in a science classroom.  One of the things I definitely need to work on is the open ended questioning that guide student learning.  Too often I find myself telling my students what I want them to learn instead of guiding them there.  The readings and projects from the class have reaffirmed the amount of work that needs to go in to a successful inquiry based classroom.  I think the best way to tackle this hurdle is one step at a time.  Don’t incorporate every aspect at once.  Do it slowly and making it meaningful for both you and your students.  Each year you can build upon the aspects you’ve already incorporated.  Don’t worry, it will be a never ending process.  You will always find something to add or change or make better because we’re teachers and we love what we do!
