Lecture & Book Signing
Developing Curious Minds…
Thurs – Nov. 14 @ 6pm – ARTS 240
A world recognized leader in developing inquiry in the classroom, John Barell will present strategies for
educators to develop more curious minds in their students. Teachers need to model curiosity to inspire higher level thinking abilities and creativity in students using the patterns of observation, thinking, and
questioning through problematic scenarios and
provocation. Mr. Barell’s motivation for inquiry in teaching and learning came from the opportunity to sail to Antarctica on Byrd’s flagship the USS Glacier as part of Operation DeepFreeze. Later Barell taught in New York City public high schools, then as
Professor Emeritus at Montclair State University in teacher education and world literature. Barell’s recent books include: Why are School Busses Always Yellow? (2008) and Did you Ever Wonder? (2013).
Book signing will follow the lecture.
