During our session we broke off into groups to discuss the article "From policing to participation: Overturning the rules and creating amiable classrooms" by Carol Anne Wien. Some groups also began to study documentation from their inquiry work. Before we ended our time together, I modelled how to use the app called, Snapchat. If you are on Snapchat you can follow me (at joannebabalis) and feel part of our #CTInquiry network on evenings when you are unable to attend in person. I make every effort to provide a school tour with images and short video clips. Unfortunately, they are only available on this social media platform for a twenty-four hour period.
Here is a peek into these enchanting classrooms!
First I went into Antonella's space:
Then I went into Maureen and Amanda's space:
- hosting a future session
- providing snacks
- arriving earlier to guide participants to our meeting room
- donating a book or gift for the classroom we visit
- co-facilitating the discussion in person or during our Twitterchats
- setting up a provocation using something you tried in your own context (optional: with documentation)
- presenting a project or strategy that you are proud of or that you feel the group would benefit from
- sharing a new professional resource
- recommending articles that are available online for us to read at future meetings
- offering other ideas, events, locations, etc. for #CTInquiry
