Inquiry & Research

Inquiry and research require students to discover phenomena through experiences that require critical thinking and problem solving. Students actively engage in collaborative, relevant, deep, and thoughtful learning at all grade levels.

Students are motivated to dig deep into topics and questions they really care about, gathering and weighing information, building knowledge, and putting knowledge to work in their lives.

Based on the curriculum, teachers frame a unit around essential questions, and students exercise choice in topics, readings, and ways to show their learning.
