The 2013 K-5 Core Academy, Applying Inquiry Instruction in Grades K-5 focused on learning how to teach all content areas through inquiry. The goal of the elementary academy will be to offer participants novel, constructivist approaches to teaching K-5 students to help teachers move away from being 'sages on the stage' and learning to become 'guides on the side'. Teachers extended their knowledge of how to teach the VA Standards of Learning through meaningful and engaging learning opportunities for all children The sessions incorporated differentiated strategies for teachers to take directly back to their classrooms for use in the fall.
“The instructors we had were amazing.
They gave me so many great practical ideas to use in my own classroom.”
