Model of Change
inquirED's model of change provides a pathway to inquiry.
Our tools and resources make it possible.
Inquiry can't be reproduced in a textbook or taught by an algorithm: it requires a skilled teacher. That's why inquirED has created a new approach to professional development.
Practice-Based Professional Learning integrates curriculum & assessment, instructional leadership, and professional learning communities to help teachers develop their practice of inquiry.
Powered by Technology
inquirED activates Practice-Based Professional Learning through our Inquiry Builder™ platform.
Within the Inquiry Builder, curiculum & assessment, instructional leadership supports, and learning community guidance work together to support the shift to inquiry.
Backed by Research
Professional learning is most effective when it's rooted in the application of curriculum, provides opportunities for collaboration, and generates growth-oriented feedback.
While each of these elements has individual value, it's when they are activated together that real shifts in practice occur.
Designed for Growth
Transformative change happens gradually as teachers implement curriculum, collaborate, and receive feedback.
inquirED's model can start in a single content area and move throughout a whole school system.

Rigorous inquiry-based social studies that builds students' inquiry skills and develop teacher practice
