We run an inquiry skills project for students at the start of Year 9, which we will elaborate on, that equips students with the skills that they will need for their independent inquiry at the end of Year 9, which we will also elaborate on.
I am working on a couple of workbooks for 2 Year 9 project. The first is the IB Community Project which runs from September to February. This is only the second time it has happened here we are learning fast.
The second is an interdisciplinary project between music and languages looking at all types of music from around the world, from folk to pop via anything else with lyrics.
I am working hard to get teacher input and make two strong, hopefully clearly similar, workbooks that demonstrate the power of FOSIL to our year 9 students.
I will post whatever I produce here and will welcome feedback but if anyone is working on anything similar and would like to share thoughts I’d love more support. I have dug through the resources and will be using what I can.
