Last weekend we had an amazing in-school workshop on inquiry, run by Kathy Short. She is a professor in the program of Language, Reading and Culture at the University of Arizona and has worked extensively with teachers to develop curriculum that actively involves students as readers and inquirers.
In this two-day workshop, through the use of literature from diverse cultures, Dr. Short and classroom teachers have focused curriculum to include International mindedness. Using critical thinking strategies with literature of diverse issues and perspectives, children will be encouraged to think more globally.
