    • Description
      As teachers move toward fuller adoption of the Next Generation Science Standards and/or the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics by implementing inquiry-based learning in their classrooms, one significant obstacle they encounter is the scarcity of robust guided-inquiry activities. In this four-day course, you will develop a practical model for writing and assessing guided-inquiry activities. You will use your new skills to write, receive feedback on, and revise two or three mini-activities. Although the instructors' expertise is in grade 7 - college level sciences, this method can be adapted for use with many disciplines.

      This workshop is a Summer Institute that includes breakfast, lunch, and an option for on-campus apartment housing at Seattle Pacific University.

      Course prerequisites
      You must have completed either a one day POGIL workshop led by a POGIL-approved facilitator or attended the fundamentals sessions at a POGIL Regional Meeting before enrolling in this course. SPU course "Teaching with Your Mouth Closed" (EDSC 5714) meets this requirement. This requirement ensures adequate mastery of basic POGIL activity structure, process skills, and classroom facilitation skills you will need to succeed in this intensive writing course.
