MBS Inquiry Learning Model
As teachers and learners we believe we need to create conditions to promote and enhance learning for everyone in our school community. We need to use a toolbox of teaching and learning strategies that will include a variety of teaching and learning methods and appeal to all learning styles.
At Mangawhai Beach School we use the Inquiry model of Collect - Connect - Create and Communicate (which is displayed in every classroom) as an image to guide students through the inquiry process. Each part of the image represents a stage of the inquiry.
