Short Session Description (one line): I'm doing inquiry, now how do I help students become better thinkers?
Full Session Description: More and more educators are shifting practice to inquiry and project-based learning. Part of the "art" of teaching using the inquiry model, however, is knowing how to facilitate conversation and thinking while students construct knowledge. This session will focus on techniques teachers can use to cause students to think more deeply, to collaborate more effectively and to examine their own and others assumptions as they construct knowledge.
