STEM and Guided Inquiry are a perfect pairing.  Whether you are looking to beef up the use of a STEM Lab, have a greater impact on standards based learning in a core science class, or if you want all your students to come up with their own original experiment for their science fair project, this course will provide you with clear steps to success. Join us here to enhance your understanding and use of inquiry. Use our research backed process (Guided Inquiry Design) to increase student outcomes as they learn from their own curiosities.

There’s lots to learn here! 2 hours of PD will inspire your practice.

Dr. Leslie Maniotes, author of Guided Inquiry Design is ready to guide your learning! 

This course is an asynchronous course with

  • 5 sections,
  • more than 15 videos of content,
  • digital workbook (writable or print the PDF download),
  • download an original NGSS aligned concepts chart,
  • Digital Template for a Unit plan, and
  • links to real world examples from the GId blog,

You’ll hear from teachers who explain how GId helped their students overcome scientific misconceptions and construct deep scientific understanding.

By the end, you’ll be ready to build your own unit from students’ curiosities about the topics in science that you teach.

Work at your own pace as you set goals, reflect on your practice, and make connections in the course workbook to a unit you are planning to implement. 

For teams looking to design a unit together, each member can take the course independently, taking down their own reflections and ideas in the course workbook.  Then, join together with your teammates and use the template provided to design from scratch or revamp a past unit.

This course was originally designed for the NASM Teacher Innovator institute.
