  • Next message: Scott Lane: "[Teacher-talkinquiry] Extending Kits To Do Inquiry"

    I am an educator at a natural history museum. We have made a real
    commitment to make our gallery programs (for school groups) inquiry
    based. We have been working on creating new programs and have sent
    staff members to the Exploratorium for training. We started this
    workshop series last week and really enjoyed the first video. It
    stimulated lots of good discussion for us. But we face a real challenge
    in our programs because they are only 45 minutes long, and it is really
    difficult to do an inquiry investigation with 20 to 30 students in that
    time frame. It makes a huge difference whether students have done this
    sort of investigation before and how much they have studied the topic.
    Since these variables are both beyond our control we just try to be real
    flexible with our expectations.

    We would love to hear from teachers about how they would like to see
    museums connect with their classrooms. How can we help build on your
    efforts to create learning communities within your classroom? Our
    museum develops in-house programs such as our gallery workshops as well
    as outreach materials such as kits. Do you have any ideas you would
    like to suggest about how museums like us could help you?
