Recently we have been asked to build our inquiries for 2018. Given the nature of who I am as a teacher and how my brain works, I intend to embark on three inquiries this year - one being my main inquiry for the year and two smaller ones that focus more on specific elements of my practice.
My main focus this year is how I can use space as another teacher within my literacy program. I will be labelling these posts with Inquiry - Environment. This goal also speaks to some of our COL achievement challenges, with particular focus on goals two, three and five.
My secondary focus will be examining how I am developing learners' articulation skills within numeracy. These posts will be called Inquiry - We. This also has connections to the COL achievement challenge six.
My last focus is reflecting on myself as a practitioner, especially as I am a mentor teacher to an AUT student this year. This posts, called Inquiry - Me, will be focusing on my reflections as I build my coaching ability with an adult.
While I appreciate that it may seem ambitious to achieve all three, I think having the platform of my blog to help me articulate will help me document my thinking and build my reflection skills further.
