What are the pros and cons of this project?First, access the Web and read about the Philadelphia Schools Dog Project: http://www.tpschool.org/wnw/view_issue.php?Preschool-Project-Featured-Online-209 (or other Web site you choose).*Review the The Philadelphia School Preschool Dog Project and consider what elements of the project made it inquiry-based? The elements of this project that are inquiry-based are those where students made inquiries, or thought of QUESTIONS, based on what they observed. What did you see that indicated the students were learning? Students gathered data as part of their research into solving, or finding answers tom the questions that they devised which, of course, were based on what they observed about dogs. From this data, they drew conclusions that provided answers to some of their questions about dogs. For other questions or inquiries, they conducted research to discover answers, such as reading books about dogs. This research also included interviews with knowledgeable people, for example.What information would you include from the project to persuade family members and administrators that an inquiry-based curriculum is effective? This project about dogs is exactly what happens when adult researchers notice something they want to know more about, or a problem they want to solve. They check what is already known (research) and then devise inquiry-type questions for what they still do not yet know: these are called hypotheses. Then they design experiments, and gather data, just like the students did. They organize this data and draw conclusions based on what the data show. This is real life learning, just like the real experts do. What are the pros and cons of this project? If the experiments and data gathering are not done scientifically, students can arrive at the wrong conclusions. Plus, all this inquiry-based, project learning takes a great deal of time, much more so than presenting this information to the students in the more traditional, classroom way. The advantages and disadvantages of this approach to learning must be carefully weighed to justify the expense of the additional time required to conduct it, against the limited time the teacher has to present all the curriculum material her scope and sequence (the STANDARDS) dictates that the children should know, to be ready for the next grades and levels of knowledge.If this solution met your needs, please consider giving me a good rating. If it did not meet your expectations, please suggest hoe it should be edited to better meet your needs, and the needs of others. Thanks for using Brainmass!
