Dr. Jim Reese presents "Inquiry-based Learning" to CDS parents
Monday, March 13
8:15 a.m.-9:15 a.m.
Parents from all divisions are invited to attend
We are pleased to invite you to attend an Inquiry-based learning (IBL) presentation by Dr. Jim Reese. Dr. Reese earned his B.A. in English from Davidson College and his M.Ed. in secondary English education from George Washington University (GWU), where he also completed his doctorate in curriculum and instruction. He is formerly the head of the English department at the International School of Brussels, and since 2001 has served as a faculty member for the Project Zero Classroom summer institute held annually in the Graduate School of Education, Harvard University. He is also an adjunct instructor at George Washington University.
IBL is at the heart of our teaching approach in all divisions at Carolina Day. Building and giving meaning to strong foundational skills is essential and just the starting point at Carolina Day. Students actively engage in thinking, questioning, research and reflection as they seek to understand and participate in real-world problem solving, project-based learning, service learning, and design thinking projects and activities. This allows them to practice, apply, build, and transfer these important skills in meaningful ways.
Plan to join us for Dr. Reese's interactive presentation for parents about IBL. He will make the case for IBL as the cornerstone for helping children make sense of the complex world around them.
