Weekly Message #4-17

images-1I am sending you this message on Sunday because I am hoping to spend Family Day the way I should – relaxing and enjoying time with those I love.  I hope that you have the chance to do the same.  We have a four day week ahead of us but I am sure it will be jam packed – especially with Valentine’s Day this Friday.

I hear the conversation continuing amongst you on the topic of student inquiry learning.  I hope that you are finding ways to work together to further explore the exciting possibilities this methodology can bring for you and your students.  Here is a link to another website which provides examples and information on the topic:

“The meaning of ‘knowing’ has shifted from being able to remember and repeat information to being able to find and use it.” 

(National Research Council, 2007)
