Inquiry: A Districtwide Approach to Staff and Student Learning
Dana, Nancy Fichtman; Thomas, Carol; Boynton, Sylvia
Now that federal and state initiatives require school districts to provide job-embedded professional development, the next step is making it happen. This book helps districts define, develop, and implement a systematic inquiry-based process with a laser-like focus on both adult and student learning. This book's inquiry model challenges educators and students to: (1) Define questions they are passionate about exploring; (2) Collect and analyze data to inform their questions; (3) Share what they have learned through the process with others; and (4) Collaborate to build on their results and improve student achievement. The authors' award-winning school improvement program, featured in the text, offers a fresh look at how to improve the quality of teaching and learning across a district. Administrators, teachers, and students will find an invaluable road map for tackling real-world challenges and taking control of their own learning. [Foreword by Jim Knight.]
