Inquiry-Based Instruction: The Three Domains (Los Angeles)

Are you interested in learning about inquiry-based instruction? Are you committed to the idea, but wondering how to begin? Do you have experience with this type of instruction, and are you craving new ideas to deepen your practice?

In this two-day seminar, we will identify the three critical domains of an inquiry-based math classroom and provide concrete strategies for improving each domain. We will use the domains as a lens for exploring several case studies, discussing their strengths, and identifying strategies for their enhancement. After learning how to employ various techniques, participants will spend time working collaboratively in a supportive environment to strengthen their own instruction.

Teachers experienced with an inquiry-based approach will be challenged to enhance their instructional practice, and teachers new to such an approach will leave with substantive ideas for their classrooms.

Putting Inquiry Into Practice: A Professional Growth Series

Deepen your instructional practice in community with like-minded educators. Read More

This five-month series is designed for teachers committed to inquiry-based instruction who are seeking to deepen their instructional practice in community with like-minded educators.

Each session will focus on a different aspect of an inquiry-based classroom and provide opportunities for teachers to collaborate on enhancing their materials and instruction. Over the course of the series, teachers will explore samples of their students’ work, present video clips of their lessons, and share drafts of their inquiry-based tasks in order to receive constructive feedback from their peers in a seminar-style format.  Ample time for discussion, reflection, and lesson modifications will be built into the program.

This professional growth series builds on the ideas covered in our one-day workshops; attendees of previous MathSenseworkshops are invited to attend.  If you have not yet attended a MathSense workshop, please consider attending Inquiry-Based Instruction: The Three Domains for an introduction to our philosophy.
