Deepen Teacher Inquiry

- Hacking Inquiry for Teachers

It's a book that represents my WHY. Its a book about energizing to action and empowering to change. Its a book about measuring what matters. It's a book about stretch and grow out of the old and into the new. Its a book about encouraging and enabling teachers to look deeply into HOW their students learn and HOW their students create new knowledge.

The magic is in the scaffolding of experiences and challenges finely tuned to the needs and interests of students and maximized through relevance and authenticity."

In so many schools I see Teacher Inquiry being flogged as a “must do”. It is still a mandated thing, Teachers are reacting to a mandated “have to do” .

This book is written to energize to action and empower to change the way we look at and use Inquiry in our schools. Unless a re-purposing of teacher inquiry is carried out and there is a drive for it to be about growing teachers as learners, the status quo will prevail and there will be little or no change to teachers’ learning.

This book is about enabling you to become more learning focused in your practice as you become a learner yourself. Deepen teacher inquiry supports thinking and connections to learning in a way that enables you to look deeply at what is happening in terms of the learning of the students in the class.

How do you lead the growth of your teachers, to make the best school for the future?

This book contextualizes Action Research Projects through the evidenced impact of the implementation of SOLO Taxonomy across a large secondary school, and case studies how SOLO has been used to improve student learning and how the impact of the use of SOLO can be measured using Action Research Projects.

This Book will

  • Help teachers to ‘gather defensible and dependable evidence from many sources’  so that they better ‘know thy impact’ and, from there, can act on it.
