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. You will learn questioning strategies that keep discussions lively and focused and that improve students' reading, critical thinking, writing, and oral communication skills. You will also practice writing interpretive questions and using follow-up questions to involve students of all ages and proficiency levels. See how our interpretive activities support student learning and meet state and district standards.
The content of this course is similar to that of the on-site Shared Inquiry Essentials course, but the format is different. The first six hours of the course are taught in three live two-hour webinars. The remainder of the course is online and covers several key areas of the Shared Inquiry method, including the core lessons and activities and tips for asking effective follow-up questions. The online portion is entirely self-paced and takes about four hours to complete. Those who complete the three-day webinar and the online modules will be eligible for a certificate of completion. Continuing education credit may also be available, subject to the approval of the governing institution.
