Dear
 
Elementary
 
School
 
Parents,
 
Professional
 
Learning
 
at
 
ISM
 
Over
 
the
 
past
 
weeks
 
we
 
have
 
had
 
the
 
pleasure
 
of 
 
hos
ng
 
two
 
leading
 
experts
 
in
 
their
 
respec
ve
 
elds.
 
They
 
have
 
spent
me
 
in
 
our
 
classrooms,
 
met
 
with
 
teachers
 
and
 
also
 
hosted
 
parent
 
sessions.
 
The
 
learning
 
has
 
been
 
profound
 
and
 
we
 
are
 
already
 
seeing
 
the
 
bene
ts
 
in
 
our
 
classrooms,
 
as
 
our
 
teachers’
 
ne
tune
 
their
 
pedagogy
 
and
 
planning.
 
A
 
special
 
thank
 
you
 
to
 
all
 
those
 
parents
 
who
 
a
ended
 
Erma
 
Anderson’s
 
workshop
 
on
 
Mathema
cs
 
and
 
Kath
 
Murdoch’s
 
session
 
on
 
Inquiry
 
based
 
learning.
 
It
 
was
 
a
 
wonderful
 
turn
out
 
and
 
indica
ve
 
of 
 
our
 
suppor
ve
 
community
 
who
 
are
 
eager
 
to
 
learn
 
together.
 
For
 
those
 
who

end,

The
 
Phases
 
of 
 
Inquiry
 
An
 
excellent
 
ques
on
 
which
 
did
 
arise
 
at
 
Kath
 
Murdoch’s
 
session
 
on
 
inquiry
 
based
 
learning
 
was
 
this:
 
is
 
there
 
a
 
systema
c
 
way
 
in
 
which
 
we
 
support
 
students
 
as
 
they
 
inves
gate
 
and
 
inquire
 
into
 
certain
 
concepts?
 
As
 
a
 
school,
 
we
 
use
 
the
 
model
 
adapted
 
by
 
Kath
 
Murdoch,
 
which
 
is
 
known
 
as
 
the
 
‘phases
 
of 
 
inquiry’.
 
As
 
learners,
 
we
 
move
 
through
 
these
 
phases
 
of 
 
learning,
 
but
 
because
 
learning
 
is
 
messy
 
and
 
not
 
always
 
linear,
 
we
 
know
 
that
 
we
 
can
 
move
 
back
 
and
 
forwards,
 
depending
 
on
 
our
 
changing
 
understandings.
 
Learning
 
usually
 
starts
 
out
 
with
 
a
 
‘tuning
 
in’
 
stage,
 
where
 
we
 
are
 
accessing
 
prior
 
knowledge,
 
connec
ng
 
with
 
students’
 
mo
va
ons
 
and
 
invi
ng
 
their
 
ini
al
 
thoughts.
 
We
 
then
 
move
 
to
 
the
 
nding
 
out’
 
phase
 
where
 
the
 
learner
 
is
 
star
ng
 
to
 
nd
 
out
 
informa
on
 
related
 
to
 
the
 
big
 
ques
ons
 
being
 
posed.
 
A
 
key
 
element
 
in
 
this
 
phase
 
is
 
emphasizing
 
the
 
mul
ple
 
opportuni
es
 
for
 
research
 
which
 
exist,
 
some
 
of 
 
which
 
lie
 
outside
 
the
 
world
 
of 
 
Google!
 
These
 
can
 
be
 
from
 
other
 
forms
 
of 
 
wri
en
 
text,
 
interviewing
 
a
 
person
 
and
 
data
 
collec
on,
 
amongst
 
others.
 
We
 
empower
 
our
 
students’
 
to
 
think
 
as
 
researchers.

Moving
 
in
 
a
 
linear
 
fashion
 
(which
 
may
 
not
 
necessarily
 
always
 
may
 
be
 
the
 
case),
 
learners
 
go
 
to
 
the
 
‘sor
ng
 
out’
 
phase,
 
where
 
there
 
is
 
a
 
focus
 
on
 
reviewing
 
the
 
informa
on
 
gathered.
 
There
 
is
 
a
 
focus
 
here
 
on
 
targe
ng
 
higher
 
level
 
thinking
 
skills
 
as
 
the
 
learner
 
makes
 
meaning
 
of 
 
the
 
informa
on.
 
The
 
‘going
 
further’
 
phase,
 
involves
 
then
 
extending
 
ones
 
thinking,
 
poten
ally
 
into
 
new
 
areas
 
of 
 
learning
 
which
 
are
 
s
ll
 
anchored
 
in
 
the
 
core
 
concept.
 
Re
ec
on
 
and
 
metacogni
on
 
play
 
a
 
crucial
 
role
 
in
 
the
 
learning
 
process,
 
where
 
the
 
emphasis
 
is
 
on
 
thinking
 
about
 
how
 
you
 
are
 
learning
 
and
 
how
 
your
 
understanding
 
has
 
progressed
 
throughout
 
the
 
inquiry.
 
The
 
nal
 
phase
 
usually
 
involves
 
sharing
 
new
 
learning
 
or
 
taking
 
ac
on
 
with
 
this
 
new
 
learning.
 
We
 
know
 
that
 
real
 
evidence
 
of 
 
understanding
 
is
 
the
 
ability
 
to
 
transfer
 
this
 
into
 
new
 
situa
ons
 
or
 
contexts.
 
As
 
men
oned,
 
it
 
is
 
cri
cal
 
to
 
note
 
that
 
these
 
phases
 
provide
 
us
 
with
 
a
 
systema
c
 
framework
 
through
 
which
 
our
 
students
 
inquire
 
into
 
concepts.
 
Without
 
this,
 
our
 
learning
 
could
 
poten
ally
 
be
 
un
directed
 
and
 
go
 
around
 
in
 
circles.
 
Please
 
do
 
over
 
the
 
next
 
weeks
 
and
 
months,
 
ask
 
your
 
children
 
what
 
they
 
are
 
inquiring
 
into
 
and
 
 just
 
what
 
new
 
understandings
 
they
 
are
 
encountering.

Every
 
e
ff 
ort
 
was
 
made
 
to
 
make
 
sure
 
all
 
of 
 
our
 
ES
 
students
 
re
ceived
 
their
 
rst
 
choice
 
of 
 
A

ac

es
 
before
 
we
 
con
sidered
 
the
 
second
 
choice
 
of 
 
every
 
student
 
at
 
ES.
 
Unfortunate
ly,
 
some
 
students
 
s
ll
 
did
 
not
 
get
 
their
 
rst
 
choice
 
due
 
to
 
the
 
high
 
demand
 
of 
 
certain
 
ac
vi
es.
 
Necessary
 
steps
 
were
 
done
 
as
 
follows:
 
Minecra
Ini
ally,
 
we
 
only
 
had
 
one
 
class
 
for
 
Minecra
which
 
could
 
ac
commodate
 
22
 
students.
 
With
 
64
 
students
 
registered
 
for
 
it,
 
we
 
decided
 
to
 
add
 
another,
 
enabling
 
22
 
more
 
students
 
to
 
take
 
ad
vantage
 
of 
 
this
 
o
ff 
ering.
 
The
 
decision
 
has
 
then
 
been
 
made
 
that
 
this
 
ac
vity
 
is
 
a
 
one
 
semester
 
o
ff 
ering
 
and
 
to
 
guarantee
 
the
 
second
 
semester
 
slots
 
for
 
the
 
remaining
 
20
 
students.
 
This
 
means
 
that
 
we
 
will
 
not

and
 
we

modate
 
80

We
 
therefore
 
opened
 
a
 
new
 
schedule
 
on
 
Wednesdays
 
to
 
cater
 
the
 
remaining
 
students
 
on

may
 
get
 
an
