Structuring Scientific Inquiry

The BC curriculum has a strong focus on the Core Competencies, inquiry-based learning and classroom assessment. But what does this look in the science curriculum? In this workshop we will explore some tried-and-tested Science World activities through the lens of inquiry. We’ll consider the use of effective questions, ways to scaffold students’ learning and how to meaningfully assess their work.
