S9 Episode 3: Creating a Culture of Inquiry with Kass Minor and Trevor MacKenzie
What is teacher-led inquiry? What is student-led inquiry? How do they interact?
We’re digging into those questions with educators and inquirers Kass Minor and Trevor MacKenzie on this episode of 3Ps in a Pod. Minor and MacKenzie break down the broad concept of inquiry into what it means for educators, leaders, and students day to day and how it intersects with conversations about equity and social justice. Minor and MacKenzie talk both about the ideas involved in approaching life and teaching with an inquiry stance and specific examples of that mindset in action. 3Ps hosts Angelia and Mary also share how they integrate inquiry into their work in the classroom and otherwise.
You can hear more from Trevor MacKenzie at the 16th Annual Teacher Leadership Institute: Where Curiosity and Leadership Unite online this summer where he will be leading general sessions along with Dr. Gholdy Muhammad and Jaime Casap.
