I just recently completed an amazing 3-day workshop on Equity, Inclusivity and teaching Social Justice in the classroom from ETFO that truly inspired me. I have been experimenting over my 10+ years teaching career with all these ideas in my classroom. This past school year, I decided to jump head first into Inquiry Based Learning. I had dabbled with it here and there, but I decided to adopt it completely for my English program. In the end, my class completed two themed units with a mentor read a loud text to help guide our questions and our learning. It wasn’t perfect, but so much learning happened. It was a great experience and with the PD that I have done, much reflection alone and with my Vice Principal, I am ready for IBL 2.0. My goal for this blog is to share my plans, my process and my reflections and student work with you. As always, I will approach everything from a Social Justice lens, because, well, that’s just the way I roll.
