FREE Shared Inquiry Training Coming Your Way

Shared Inquiry Training with Great Books Programs

This training is designed to support implementation of Shared Inquiry with Great Books materials for grades K-9.
In this hands-on interactive implementation course, experienced trainers model and teach the Shared Inquiry method and help educators learn:

  • The importance of selecting complex texts
  • What types of questions support each Shared Inquiry objective
  • Close-reading activities
  • How to lead a student-driven Shared Inquiry discussion
  • How to assess student performance with our critical thinking rubric
  • How to plan an effective implementation of shared inquiry

Students who learn Shared Inquiry:

  • Use reading comprehension strategies purposefully

  • Support ideas with textual evidence and weigh evidence for divergent ideas
  • Go beyond initial responses to think more deeply about issues.
  • Develop social and emotional intelligence through respectful dialogue and collaboration
