On 3 June, Elizabeth Hutchinson and I met for the first in a series of monthly discussions about education, school libraries and FOSIL-based inquiry.
The purpose of the series is twofold.
Firstly, it is an informal opportunity to share ongoing developments to FOSIL as a means through which the school library becomes integral to the educational process. These ongoing developments are the result of an ever-deepening understanding of inquiry as a learning process that is aimed at students acquiring important curriculum content in and across all subject areas. An important source of growing insight into this learning process and its implementation arises out of my weekly discussions with Barbara Stripling.
Secondly, it is an informal opportunity to explore the growing number of resources that are available to support FOSIL-based inquiry, both curricular and extracurricular, most of which are freely available from the FOSIL Group site.
