WHAT IS INQUIRY BASED LEARNING?

Traditionally, classrooms in Ontario have followed the rote learning model, which is a technique based on repetition and memorization. But recently, those classrooms are disappearing in favour of a more collaborative space, in which teachers are facilitators using a technique called inquiry-based teaching. “Inquiry-based teaching is an approach to instruction that begins with exploring curriculum content and providing a framework for the students to ask their own questions which builds…

Investigating the Meaning of Inquiry in Kindergarten

What is Inquiry Based Leaning in Kindergarten? In simple form, inquiry-based learning is more of a student-directed way of learning rather than teacher-directed. In some cases, the teaching team may set the general framework for learning, but for the most part, the learning is based on the students questions, ideas and passions. This is similar to the emergent curriculum if that is a term you are more familiar with. Rather than working off set lesson plans that are theme-based and not…

A Curiosity and Fascination with Leaves

We must abandon our idea of a static, knowable educator and move on to a view of an educator in a state of constant change and becoming. The role of the educator shifts from a communicator of knowledge to a listener, provocateur, documenter, and negotiator of meaning. Pacini-Ketchabaw et al., 2009, p. 103 (The Kindergarten Program, 2016) I start with the quote above because I think it's so important to understand the inquiry process not only for educators, but also for families who engage…

Colour Inquiry

Colour Exploration Our aim was to have the students explore colour using the primary colours. We placed only the primary colours (red, yellow and blue) paint at the art center for students to experiment with. We wanted the students to discover naturally that when mixing the primary paint colours, new colours can be created. For some students, this became evident right away as they mixed red and blue to create purple and yellow and blue to create green and yellow and red to create orange…
