How can the design of curriculum act as a gateway to invite FLOW into our classrooms?
By carefully considering how we design and prepare curriculum, Flow can have a consistent presence in our classrooms. In this workshop, we will consider how inquiry based teaching allows for students’ own interests and motivation to take over the learning journey. Our exploration will examine the inquiry process by considering different models of inquiry, looking to develop a shared understanding of inquiry specific to your school. We will then examine ways of designing curriculum around conceptual understandings, looking to make connections to and build on the current teaching happening in the school. While discussing this backwards by design framework, we will consider how different types of inquiry can be used to help students experience Flow throughout their learning journey.
