Introduction

lInquiry-based learning for children begins with our observations, questions and reflections.

Reggio-inspired thinker, presenter, author, and  consultant Susan Stacey in her book Inquiry-based Early Learning Environments explains that the cycle of inquiry is multifaceted and can be explored simultaneously by children and educators. Seeing, understanding and nurturing inquiry-based learning can be supported through questions that prompt us to observe carefully, think deeply and wonder in new ways.

Researchers at Project Zero at Harvard have designed various thinking processes to support educators and students of all ages scaffold their thinking and learning. This e-course follows one of these processes called “See – Think – Wonder” to help us with our own inquiries into literacy within child-centred, play-based programs.

In this course we will explore this process in three modules:

  1. Module 1/ The Story Box : Seeing literacy from multiple perspectives 
  2. Module 2/ Treasure Box: Thinking about our role as educators in shaping children’s literacy learning.
  3. Module 3/Idea Box: Wondering how do we confidently and effectively nurture literacy learning in programs for infants through to kindergarten using an inquiry-based pedagogy. (Creating playful, meaningful and authentic literacy experiences in early learning programs.)
