Seminar Short DescThe average preschooler student asks between 400-500 questions a day. A high school student: 1-2. This workshop, designed for teachers at elementary, middle, and high school levels, will explore ways to empower kids to ask questions and spark their curiosity.
Seminar Full DescThis workshop will help educators focus on student-centered learning through inquiry-based learning practices. Curiosity and questioning are inherent within us all, yet as children grow older, they may become more reserved in exploring their curiosity. The workshop will help kids develop autonomy, exploration and experimentation skills, bolster their imagination, and embrace intrinsic motivation. In addition, the workshop will offer ways teachers can get their students to ask questions through the Question Formulation Technique and also using Essential Questions to guide their lessons and units.
