What is inquiry? How do we use writing to build an inquiry community?

9:30 - 10:00

Welcome and Reviewing Reflections

10:00 - 10: 30

Pose, Wobble, and Flow

  • Introduce today's focus question: What is inquiry? How do we use writing to build an inquiry community?

  • In the introduction to What It Means to Pose, Wobble, and Flow, NWP colleagues Garcia & O'Donnell-Allen (2015) challenged the “alluring notion that there’s a set of best-practice teaching methods somewhere out there that are so foolproof they should come with a money-back guarantee. As [bell] hooks points out, ‘engaged pedagogy recognize[s] that strategies must constantly be changed, invented, re-conceptualized to address each new teaching experience’ (1994, pp. 10–11)” (p. 1).

  • Reflect on your experiences this morning and your own classroom experiences.

  • What “poses” were present?

  • What were the “wobbles”?

  • What do you envision “flow” like?

      • Where did you see criticality?

      • Where did you see identities?

  • More questions to consider:

      • How are people constructing Green Books and navigating spaces today?

      • Think about how we find joy in the experiences we construct with students?

      • Can students make a Philly Green Book today?

  • What implications are there for the work you do as an educator?

  • How might you support learners in making sense of museum spaces and exhibits?
