Blended Shared Inquiry Training

This course prepares you to begin using the Great Books Foundation's Shared Inquiry™ method of learning through reading and discussion with students at all levels. Learn questioning strategies that keep discussions lively and focused and improve students' reading, critical-thinking, writing, and oral communication skills. Practice writing interpretive questions and using follow-up questions to involve students of all ages and proficiency levels. See how interpretive activities support student learning and meet state and district standards.

The content of this course is similar to the two-day On-Site Shared Inquiry Training, but the format is different. The first day of the course is similar to the first day of the two-day training and is taught face-to-face to a group of teachers in a central location. The remainder of the course is online and covers several key areas of the Shared Inquiry method, such as asking effective follow-up questions and overview of core lessons and activities. The online portion of the training is entirely self-paced and takes about four hours to complete. Those who complete the first day of the course and the online portion will be eligible for a Certificate of Completion. Continuing education credit may also be available, subject to the approval of the governing institution.
