Think about it.

My

Inquiry

for 2017


“Recognising and spreading sophisticated pedagogical practice across our community so that students learn in better and more powerful ways...”

The Manaiakalani Community of Learning is working together on this task using the expertise existing in our community of learning. There are 6 achievement challenges that each of the teachers have aligned their inquiry with.

In 2017 for my inquiry I have selected the CoL achievement challenge 5.

"Improve the achievement of students with additional needs in the learning areas of English/key competency using language symbols and texts"


I have decided to target 5 students in my class. The class is Te Hapori and is part of the senior cluster of Sommerville Special School. Te Hapori is a transition class with student aged from 17-21 in their last years of attending Sommerville. Here is a link to my class blog to give you are better description of my learners and our curriculum.

After meeting with my principal and teaching and learning team I have decided to focus my inquiry to specifically look at the improvement of thinking skills.


"Improve the achievement of students with additional needs in the learning areas of English using the key competency thinking."

The teaching as inquiry framework I will be using in 2017 has been specifically co-constructed for Manaiakalani schools using the familiar Learn Create Share structure.
The elements in this framework share close similarities with other models New Zealand teachers use.

I will be labeling my posts as I update my inquiry throughout the year to make the content easy to access.
