It was really good to see your thoughtful summary and reflection of the inquiry process in your case study, Elizabeth. Linking the lesson objectives to the underlying framework of skills is really helpful. We have struggled to find a standardised way to link to the framework and summarise and evaluate projects that works for us at Oakham, and I would like to try using your format.
I think it is important to be clear about the difference between information literacy and inquiry skills because again we are hampered by a lack of a shared vocabulary! At Oakham, we started our journey looking for a way to teach information literacy and came to realise that it was only part of the bigger picture of helping pupils to make sense of their world. For us, inquiry is a really good way to develop skills essential for this in pupils, including academic honesty, taking a critical approach to sources of information and using information to construct arguments.
There is work do be done on establishing a vocabulary, I think. I hope this forum will provide a space for this to happen.
Thank you for sharing your ideas so freely. This exchange of ideas as well as resources is just what we hoped would come out of this forum.
