    • 2. Inquiry-Based Learning has 5 common components Questions Student Engagement Cooperative Interaction Performance Evaluation Variety of Resources
    • 3.
      • Lesson begins with a question
      • Essential question
      • The teacher asks an essential question
      • Stimulates investigation and sparks curiosity
      • Can be asked over and over, no one right answer
      • Answer must be invented or constructed
      • From the top of Bloom's Taxonomy
          • Requires students to EVALUATE (make a thoughtful choice between options, with the choice based upon clearly stated criteria)
          • Requires students to SYNTHESIZE (invent a new or different version)
          • Requires students to ANALYZE (develop a thorough and complex understanding through skillful questioning)
      • General in nature and lead to more questions
      • Example Essential Questions
      • Must a story have a moral?
      • Were mathematical theorems invented or discovered?
      • Subsidiary/Unit Questions
      • Developed by students and teacher to find an answer to the essential question
      • Topic orientated
      • Specific
      • Example
      • Essential Question: Do we have to fight wars?
      • Unit Question: What events lead to the Civil War?
      Questions
    • 4.
      • Teacher is facilitator
      • Students
        • carry out activities using materials, observing, evaluating, and recording information
        • sort out information and decide what is important
        • see detail
        • detect sequences and events
        • notice change
        • detect differences and similarities
        • are creating a unique product that shows their understanding
      Student Engagement
    • 5.
      • Students are asked to
        • work in pairs or groups
        • discussing ideas
      • Not a competition.
      • Answers come in all shapes and forms.
      Cooperative Interaction
    • 6.
      • Students create an end product to communicate their knowledge,
        • slideshow
        • graph
        • poster
        • song
        • mural
      • Scoring Guides
        • students see SG prior to creating product
      Performance Evaluation
    • 7. textbooks reference books magazines web sites videos podcasts posters experts Variety of Resources
    • 8. Traditional Lesson Students will be taught the 3 types of rocks (sedimentary, igneous, metamorphic) using a textbook. Students will then create a flipbook of the three types of rocks that includes definitions and examples. The Inquiry-Based Learning Version Essential Question : What patterns exist under the earth's crust? Student Engagement : Students observe rock samples detecting differences and similarities, sorting and recording information Cooperative Learning : Students will work in research groups Performance Evaluation : Students will publish a multimedia slide to be shared with their classmates, scored with a scoring guide Variety of Resources : textbook, Internet, CD-ROMS, and rock samples. Example
