Transcript of Inquiry Based Learning and the New Curriculum
Teaching Strategies for the 21st Century
INQUIRY BASED LEARNING: A METHOD AND STRATEGY FOR OUR 21ST CENTURY LEARNERS
How does it work? What are the benefits?
3 RULES OF ACTIVE STUDENT LEARNING
COMES FIRST- QUESTIONS ARE THE WINDOWS TO LEARNING
THE MESS- TRIAL AND ERROR IS ESSENTIAL TO INQUIRY AND EXPERIENCE
- THIS IS CRITICAL TO THE APPLICATION OF LEARNING
I was an inquistitive and creative individual.
I struggled in school as a visual and spatial learner.
I fell in love with the arts specifically visual arts and theatre arts.
I left home at 17 to study Technical Theatre at Niagara College in Welland, On
I graduated with a 2 year diploma in Theatre Arts- specializing in Scenery Painting
I spent 25 years honing my skills as a scenic and visual artist, in the theatre, film and televsion sectors
4 years ago, I left the workforce in order to fulfill a lifelong goal in higher education- I graduated from McMaster University with an Honors Degree in Fine Art, 2012
In 2013 I was accepted to Brock University's Teacher Education Program- I graduated in May of this year- My teachable subjects are Art and English, grades 7 to 12
I AM ONE OF
NEWLY GRADUATED TEACHERS IN ONTARIO
NEW TEACHERS ARE ENTERING CANADA PER YEAR FROM OTHER COUNTRIES IN ORDER TO FIND WORK
WHAT CAN A NEW TEACHER DO TO GET AHEAD??
VOLUNTEER AT A SCHOOL
FIND A PART-TIME JOB
GO BACK TO THE JOB YOU HAD BEFORE / TRAVEL ABROAD FOR WORK
CHANGE CAREER GOAL
VOLUNTEERING AT SEVERAL DIFFERENT HIGH SCHOOLS IN HAMILTON- IN BOTH THE VISUAL ART AND THEATRE ART DEPARTMENTS
CONTINUING MY ART PRACTICE- CURRENTLY PART OF LISTER ARTS GALLERY IN THE LISTER BUILDING ON JAMES ST. N
SPEAKING AT VENUES LIKE THIS IN ORDER TO KEEP INVOLVED AND CONNECTED IN THE EDUCATION ENVIRONMENT
STILL WORKING IN MY PAST PROFESSION AS A SCENIC ARTIST
WHAT AM I DOING????
* Students need practice on how to think critically
*opportunities to sound opinions and discuss intelligently
*understand the difference between fact and opinion
*learn how to listen to others and to respect others thoughts, ideas and opinions
*Student Centered/ Learners are presented with problems or isssues to be explored and solved
*should be sensitive to learners experiential backgrounds
TEACHER LED INQUIRY BASED LEARNING
*The teacher or educator plays a role as a question asker not an answerer
*The teacher interacts with the students as a facilitator and guide
*Teacher can link the content to to issues themes and problems
PROCESSES OF INQUIRY
HOW DOES IT WORK BEST?
IN GROUPS OR PAIRS
*STUDENTS SHARE INFORMATION WITH EACH OTHER AND AS A CLASS
*IT HELPS TO CHOOSE TOPICS THAT ARE OF REAL INTEREST TO THE STUDENTS
* HOW THEY CAN MAKE CONNECTIONS BETWEEN THEIR OWN EXPERIENCES AND WHAT THEY ARE ANALYZING
EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING: What is it?
THE ACTUAL LIVING THROUGH OF AN EVENT OR EVENTS
*THE LEARNER IS DIRECTLY IN TOUCH WITH
THINGS AND PEOPLE OR IS INVOLVED IN ACTIVITIES THAT
*THE PROCESS IS LEARNER CENTERED AND ACTIVITY ORIENTATED
THE ULTIMATE GOAL? TO HAVE THE STUDENTS QUESTION IDEAS, CONCEPTS, AND OPINIONS ON THEIR OWN- THESE ARE THE SEEDS TO REAL STUDENT LEARNING!
HOW DO THE STUDENTS BENEFIT?
*STUDENTS HAVE SELF-CONTROL OF THEIR EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES
*THEY MAKE MORE REALY CONNECTIONS TO THE CONTENT WHEN IT HAS PERSONAL MEANING
*FEELINGS, ATTITUDES, VALUES AND EXPERIENCES ARE CRITICAL TO STUDENT LEARNING
EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING STRATEGIES
*MANIPULATING SYMBOLIC OBJECTS
*MAKING A MODEL
*CREATING AN ART OBJECT
EXAMPLE: FIELD TRIP
DURING MY PRACTICE TEACHING I TOOK A GRADE 12, ALL FEMALE, SCULPTURE CLASS FROM SIR JOHN A MACDONALD SECONDARY SCHOOL TO THE MCMASTER MUSEUM OF ART TO VIEW THE 2102 GRADUATING CLASS "SUMMA SHOW" ...
THE REVISED CURRICULUM: GOALS?
*THE ARTS CURRICULUM WAS REVISED IN 2009 FOR THE 2010 SCHOOL YEAR
*ITS GOALS ARE THIS:
-SUPPORT HIGH QUALITY LEARNING
-GIVING INDIVIDUAL STUDENTS THE OPPORTUNITY TO CHOOSE PROGRAMS THAT SUIT THEIR SKILLS AND INTERESTS
-A BROADER RANGE OF LEARNING OPTIONS OUTSIDE TRADITIONAL CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION
WILL ENABLE STUDENTS TO BETTER CUSTOMIZE THEIR HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION AND IMPROVE THEIR PROSPECTS FOR SUCCESS IN SCHOOL AND IN LIFE
