Thanks to generous funding from the Vancouver Foundation, student-led inquiry projects are in full swing across the province. Students, with direct support from educators, are taking ownership over their learning in new and exciting ways. They are generating their own ideas about what they want to learn and how they will learn it, and often times, inquiry has become a powerful way for students to connect to history and build identity.
School teams are also learning strategies that support developing a good inquiry question, and how to remain focused on that question throughout the learning process. City Central Learning Centre in Surrey (SD #36) is demonstrating this by providing students with self-regulated learning strategies to promote successful student inquiry in an alternative school setting.
We’re excited by the projects underway and how students, teachers and communities are coming together through inquiry and learning. For a full list of school questions this year, click here.
