Next message: Jennifer Cronin: "Re: [Teacher-talkinquiry] reflection on first session"
One of the most agreed on aspects from our first viewing of these videos,
and this came from everyone of us, is that no matter how wonderful the
inquiry idea/way of doing this may be, we are REQUIRED to cover specific
topics, subjects and activities as dictated by the adopted commercial
product purchased by our BOE and our Science committee. We can adapt some
of it but there are also parts that we just have to handle as dictated to us
in the "manual".
The ideas presented on preparing kids for the inquiry method (especially
when they haven't been used to this way of doing Science) were interesting
and made good sense. We were laughing that it all comes down to "last
year", and the bottom line is kindergarten. (Obviously I teach
kindergarten) And everyone lawyers blames the kindergarten teacher. :o)
I likes the idea of the folder walks with the wonderings and the thinkings.
We were amazed at the rooms and the materials those teachers seemed to have.
Some appeared to be "Science teacher", they got the kids only for the
science periods each day. We also marveled at the ease with which they
appeared to get things set up.
