One of the most frustrating components of implementing and facilitating Inquiry Buddies is finding collaboration time for the teachers involved. Last year, we had a grant from the BCTF, which was matched by the district. This grant gave us time to refine our personal inquiry questions while also giving us some time to collaborate. Yesterday, we found out that we have once again been given a grant to support our inquiry project. This will be done, like last year along side other teaches working on their own inquiry journeys.
Bonny and I were already very excited to to continue the journey we started last year, and are thrilled that we will now have some release time to collaborate with each other and Brian. This extra time will allow us to continue to develop our website and supporting resources. It will also give us the time we need to explore ways we can use technology to enhance student inquiry!
These are exciting times for inquiry at Willoughby, and we love being a part of it. We are so excited that we were once again given a grant to pursue our passion and know that this will continue to help us support our students passions!
