Kim Reakes Smith: The Guided Inquiry Design Framework combines aspects of the FCPS Learning Model, the Engagement Model, Portrait of a Graduate Skills, and Blended Learning best practices into one approach. Aspects of the design methodology can be infused into social studies lessons and naturally connect to the PBL process. The Google Site, linked above, outlines each step of Guided Inquiry Design and highlights examples of each stage in action. Feel free to join the Google Classroom; teachers from last year’s AAP winter in-service and this fall’s English in-service shared additional ideas there.
