TGR Foundation Presents Creating an Inquiry Minded Environment

Dear Educator, 

 Please join TGR Foundation for a free professional learning opportunity in Philadelphia on February 8. 2020.  Read below to learn more. 

 Creating an Inquiry Minded Environment   - Engagement without a connection to discovery may be fun but can leave students in the shallow end of the learning pool. Using an inquiry mindset to build discovery-based lessons with strong content objectives, lead to both high engagement and a connection to higher level learning. 

Session Topic: What is Inquiry? 
Participants will learn how to leverage engagement using an Inquiry based activity that can be customized to your class needs. Participants will also be able to describe the different types of engagement and inquiry, identify key inquiry elements in model activities, and plan for how they can incorporate inquiry into their learning environments. 

This workshop is open to all types of educators looking to enhance their student-centered learning environments and collaborate with other like-minded peers in the TGR EDU: Create community. Participants will also learn more about a 5-day STEM Studio being hosted in this same area, summer 2020.  

When:            Saturday, February 8, 2020 from 9am-3pm 

Where:          Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School, 1717 W Allegheny Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19132
