Hello to all,

Adult Educators are looking for more effective and creative ways to engage their learners in the classroom.  I have a suggestion for a resource that may help instructors to plan and initiate inquiry-based teaching and learning.  The resource consists of a book and DVD by Jay McTighe and Grant Wiggins.  Essential Questions: Opening Doors to Student Understanding is the book and the DVD is Essential Questions.

The book demonstrates how to use key questions to enhance the students’ understanding of concepts in all grades and subject areas.  It shows how students can be engaged in ways to promote deeper thinking and knowledge.  The video demonstrates putting the process into place and showcases actual classrooms using the essential question procedure.  If you are looking for some professional growth this summer, you might want to check it out.
