Inquiry 2015

Thinking about Thinking - my Inquiry this year involves just that! I'm inquiring into how we can promote higher order thinking, greater cognitive engagement in our classrooms.

We've continued to make learning visible, provide our tamariki with opportunities  to be creative and share their learning but ... are they cognitively engaging and demanding enough? Are our kids prepared for the next step in their journey?  And what do the kids think?

So what next...

LEARN -  develop a greater understanding of  SOLO Taxonomy.

CREATE - apply this understanding to the development of follow-up Literacy Tasks. Capture student voice, responses to the activities.

SHARE - watch this space...
