What is inquiry-based learning, and where can we access resources to implement inquiry-based instruction? Now found in both Wisconsin’s Standards for Social Studies as well as in Wisconsin Standard’s for Environmental LIteracy & Sustainability, Inquiry standards will ensure that students engage in deeper learning. Come to this session to become acquainted with the new standards, geography-based inquiry methods, and leave with new strategies developed by National Geographic.

Join us for both sessions--parts one and two--to not only learn about inquiry, but also to engage with tools for geographic and environmental inquiry.
