A diverse template to help students craft inquiry questions to produce different types of projects.
This teaching resource is a fantastic template that can be used in a large variety of ways. Inquiry learning has become a large part integrated topical learning and can be difficult to help students feel facilitated when making their own learning choices.
This template can be used to direct work with your chosen class unit, or be a useful tool for full negotiated, flipped learning styles to empower students to say what they would like to learn. Digital Citizenship and good research practise can be a difficult skill for students to maintain. This template gives students a place to document their research information and ensure they keep away from easy downfalls such as plagiarism and distracting resource types that do not contribute to their final presentation.
You can use all pages of this template, or pick the ones relevant to your classroom needs.
