Please share your opinions of the following prompts with a neighbor:
“The essence of inquiry-based learning is that children participate in the planning, development and evaluation of projects and activities.” … From http://www.youthlearn.org/learning/activities/howto.asp
“We can provide the opportunities, but I cannot figure out how to force anyone to learn or force anyone to want to learn.” …Edward
“We all know the saying you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink” …Diedra
Grades promote a culture of distrust between teacher and student, between teacher and parents and between parents and students.
Finally, reflect on the prompts that I generated from reading the postings from all of you. What do they say about my biases? What questions are most on your mind at this point in the Institute? What more would you like to explore? How (by what method) would you like to explore it? What is working for you and what is not working so well for you?
