Welcome to this first post in a series that promotes student inquiry in the classroom. I believe that inquiry really involves the art of knowing how to ask a question. At the same time, it is important to understand the science of answering the question asked, and knowing when it brings up a new question. I often call this the inquiry spiral.
You will discover multiple resources in this series along with some great ideas for finding student success in student owned inquiry. I promise you will find some great information coming your way in the posts that follow…So sign up now and please pass this on with a retweet. I really like Diving and Investigative Questions.
In fact, I like them so much more than Essential Questions. You might ask why? You may remember that in the revision the different levels were changed into action. In fact, I strongly believe that learning is a verb and is based on action. As students bring this process around to identify answers and ideas that finally converge, they are suddenly back on the path to even higher order divergent thinking.
It is amazing to watch students become aware that answers can bring on even more questions. I believe that both DQ and IQ allow students to take part in real inquiry and research. If the question is Google-able then it probably is not deep inquiry. Now, using advanced Google skills to find answers that create more questions fits the bill for common core skills.
Literacy that is built to comprehend, analyze, compare, contrast, and make meaning of nonfiction across the disciplines is essential. Take a look at portions of standards educators must facilitate with students. These really do sound like some great inquiry action that can be found on the super highway of Driving Questions. Let me explain. Why are driving and investigative questions so difficult? The question must be simply stated so that students can uncover the content standards themselves. It should not give away the contents standards which students may not really care about.
It should engage the students and create wonderment through relevance to their world. The added bonus of building important 21st-century skills is a natural outcome. Keep in mind that the Driving or Investigative Question may take on many names. The important point is that it drives an investigation based on student owned inquiry. It really is the very first step in providing students that opportunity to not just answer the question, but come up with their own inquiry. Thank you for joining me and I hope you found this information something you can use in your school and useful to share with other educators.
As always, I invite you to follow me on twitter mjgormans. Please give this post a retweet and pass it on to someone who will benefit. Have a great week… enjoy the Websites! You see… we really must learn to put into practice some of the best lessons never taught! Talking about best lessons… how about some best PD? Have an exciting tournament and a wonderful week! The post also contained 17 links to help bring the engagement and excitement of the NCAA tournament to your classroom. When basketball can be integrated with content standards and 21st century education, everyone wins.
Please stake a moment to enjoy these next 17 links. What is a Slam Dunk? It could just be a slam dunk lesson! Students will enjoy the video, accompanying fact, and any activity incorporated with it. Students follow a profile of Elton Brand, an accomplished basketball player who uses math in his work, students are presented with this mathematical basketball challenge.
This site does require free registration for educators. Great multimedia and ideas for your project! It demonstrates the difference between precision and accuracy. Students design a device that can shoot a basketball free-throw shot accurately every time. A wonderful article that promotes both sports and academics.
These games can be used in the classroom in connection with smart boards and Promethean boards. Best of all, students learn how to make sense of the data they collect. It is also a wonderful time to use a basketball to display the laws of physics. Using video segments and web interactives, students engage in an exploration of mathematics, specifically reasoning and sense making, to solve real world problems. Perhaps you can create an activity around this. Where Will it Go?
This is a perfect opportunity to use any ball… or perhaps a basketball? It might be the basis for a great STEM lesson during this exciting basketball season. Discovery Education — Basketball resources that you can use with your students. You will find some great activities. There are some amazing resources presented by Discovery and the NBA. So there are the rest of those NCAA links. Please follow and sign up.

It was twenty minutes before the first school bell would ring, signifying the beginning of another day of learning. Students were beginning to enter and fill the classroom. There was air of extreme excitement as the teacher looked from nook to corner. It was a typical room filled with students, desks, chairs, and a few computers.
This morning seemed to be different from the others.
