Drawing on the contributors' practical and academic experiences, this is the complete guide for those working towards successful completion of teacher inquiry-oriented courses. "Inquiring in the Classroom" provides a practical and accessible guide to planning, carrying out and presenting successful classroom inquiry for teachers working towards a Masters-level qualification in education, whether on a MTL programme, working towards an Education MA or carrying out teacher inquiry as part of their professional development. The contributors provide a clear and concise roadmap drawing on case studies throughout bringing educational theory to life by linking it to classroom practice. They also provide invaluable support on writing and presenting at Masters level. Topics covered include: Teaching, Learning and Assessment - Subject Knowledge and Curriculum Development; Children's Development and Behaviour; Inclusion; Leadership and Management; and, Collaborative Working. Through a clear emphasis on the practical implications of educational inquiry, the book brings together key elements of continuing professional development (CPD) and Masters-level learning.
The contributors draw on their experience of teaching and supporting Masters-level inquiry to provide practical suggestions for how teachers can support each other in classroom inquiries and develop the skills necessary to transform practice and raise engagement and attainment for all pupils.
