In guided inquiry, teachers help students use their own language for constructing knowledge by active listening and questioning. While exploring and investigating a problem, teachers guide students to talk through their thinking, which supports development of students' mathematical reasoning and Language Skills.
Teachers can also target specific math skills through guided inquiry activities. Arithmetic Fact Retrieval, Cardinality, Counting, Estimation, Operations, Place Value, and Symbolic Number skills can all be supported through guided inquiry with problems using these skills.
Watch how this school embraces inquiry-based learning in multiple subjects, including reading and writing. As students and teachers ask questions that drive deeper thinking, students develop their curiosity and excitement for learning.
