Collaborative Inquiry

I’ve been lucky to work with a group of engaged, forward thinking, learning professionals recently and for an extended period of years.  Collaborative inquiry is the way we work.  We’ve been forging a new path at our mid-sized high school that empowers students to engage in their own inquiries and independent studies.  We think together, read together, talk together, plan together and teach together.  Oh, and we have fun together, too.

We’re a pretty diverse group of individuals.  But we share a common idea and we dig pretty deeply into it to nurture it and make it grow.  We’re proud of our program.  It’s been a journey – and one that I hope to continue.

This article is an easy read that outlines the conditions that are necessary for professional growth through collaborative inquiry.  Have a read!

Collaborative Inquiry:  empowering teachers in their professional development

Author: Judy

Educator, learner, thinker, innovator. With 30 years of teaching under my belt - 16 of those as a school based administrator who taught in the classroom every day - I am on a new venture as Principal of Special Projects. I'm no longer at "a" school - I'm at all of our schools. I no longer have a staff or students of my own. Instead, I think deeply about learning for all in our district. Students, teachers, support staff, me. This blog is my commitment to reading, thinking and learning about education and sharing it with all of the amazing educators out there.
