#cdltSharedInquiry2018

The Great Books Foundation is a renowned leader in inquiry-based education. Join us for a dynamic exploration in how effective questioning brings complex texts alive across the curriculum, increasing students’ interest, involvement, and learning.

This course teaches participants how to use our Shared Inquiry™ method of learning to help develop students’ reading comprehension, increase critical thinking skills, facilitate thoughtful discussions about texts, and build writing skills based on the fiction and nonfiction selections students have read.

This professional development workshop provides:

  • Hands-on, interactive learning.
  • Practical skills you can put to use right away.
  • Experienced trainers who model the Shared Inquiry method.
  • Step-by-step instructions to implement Great Books programs.

This course features 10 hours of live instruction over two consecutive days. Attendance is required for both days of the course. When you complete the course, you will be ready to begin using inquiry-based learning in your classroom!

WORKSHOP GOALS

Strong inquiry-based instruction has been proven to engage all students at higher levels of reading and thinking. Shared Inquiry enhances all the basic language arts skills—reading comprehension, critical thinking, writing, speaking, and listening—and enables students to learn more across the curriculum.

In this course, you will learn about the Great Books Foundation’s Shared Inquiry method of reading and discussion, which is designed to help readers of all ages:

  • Read with greater comprehension.
  • Think critically about substantive ideas.
  • Share thoughts and opinions effectively.

In this course, participants will:

  • Learn questioning strategies to lead productive, text-based discussions that are lively and focused.
  • Help build students’ reading, critical-thinking, writing, and oral communication skills.
  • Learn criteria for identifying texts that yield the richest experience when used with the Shared Inquiry method.
  • Practice writing interpretive questions and using follow-up questions to involve students of all ages and proficiency levels.
  • Learn strategies that challenge students to go further with their ideas and opinions.
  • Move from a prescriptive, instructional approach to an inquiry-based, collaborative approach.
