Did you Inquiry?

The third annual (IDM)™ Summer Institute in Raleigh, North Carolina is history.

Sponsored by C3 Teachers, the National Council for the Social Studies, and North Carolina State University, the Institute featured hands-on opportunities for teachers to develop inquiry materials for use in their classrooms and to join a community of educators who share an interest in invigorating their classrooms through inquiry teaching and learning. The Institute featured the Inquiry Design Model (IDM), a unique approach to creating curriculum and instructional materials while relying on teacher expertise and experience.

The IDM Institute Inquiry Challenge is an opportunity for you to complete your blueprint, write up a plan for implementing your inquiry, and get it published. To participate, head to the IDM Generator at http://idm.c3teachers.org/ Log in or create an account, add your blueprint, and write up your inquiry. If you need help using the IDM Generator, you’ll see a tutorial on the page.  Please tag your inquiry in the “Inquiry Challenge” Hub. When you have finished send us an email at info@c3teachers.org. We will select the best of the bunch to professionally edit and publish on our C3 Teachers Inquiry page at http://www.c3teachers.org/inquiries/ We’ll also send your inquiry out in our monthly newsletter. If you’re interested, please send us your final draft no later than August 31, 2017.
