Day One – Thinking About Inquiry & the Virtual Library

Please used this Google Document to capture our thinking for the day.

Day Two – Going Deeper with Inquiry & the Virtual Library

We used a “Junk Drawer” for provocation. And the question organizer: Think Deep: Different Types of Questions to help organize our questions. We then debriefed both the strategy & the question organizer.

As we explored the Virtual Library, we used the graphic organizer Muddy/Marvy Moments in a Google Doc to share our reflections.
