The Inquiry Project Professional Development

Professional development is comprised of Implementation Workshops that introduce teachers to the Inquiry Project curriculum and embedded assessment opportunities, and Talk Science, professional development designed to help teachers lead productive science discussions.

Implementation Workshops

Onsite Implementation Workshops are grade–specific and designed for teachers new to the Inquiry Project curriculum. These workshops help teachers to become familiar with the curriculum’s goals, central concepts, investigations, and materials. Participants gain firsthand experience doing the investigations to get a feel for how students learn through inquiry. By the end of the workshop, participants have a solid grasp of the curriculum’s overarching conceptual story and core teaching strategies.
