Steps and stages for developing your inquiry project
- Topic area - Be specific
- Why it is relevant? How will it support the community?
- Is it culturally responsive?
- What communities are you going to engage with? - Communities could include students, other teachers and school staff, and/or whanau. You will need to discuss the nature and scope of this community (i.e. who are the community members) and why you have chosen to engage with them.
- When are you going to engage with them and why?
- What data will you collect? Quantitative and qualitative? Beginning, middle and end
- Get initial feedback on your plan
- Document the feedback then record how you will respond to it? What changes will you make?
- How might your findings impact
This was good to get me to start to think about my inquiry plan. As I haven’t finished my literature review yet I am not 100% sure what my focus will be.
This is my literature review question: What innovations can we use to make a student driven curriculum successful for the achievement of all learners in upper primary?
For my inquiry plan I might focus on self-management skills or focus on a particular curriculum area and how student driven curriculum can be utilised more in that area or do student driven learning in all areas but specifically upper primary.
As I continue reading and developing my literature review, look closer at the hunch and scanning part I am sure it will become clearer what my question will be
