Illustrative Examples of Inquiry-Based Learning

Here at the Calgary Science School we build our understanding of inquiry-based learning around the Inquiry Rubric developed in conjunction with the Galileo Educational Network.

To help unpack how the Galileo Inquiry Rubric is lived out in specific projects from our school, we’ve compiled the following list of projects tied to particular elements of the Inquiry Rubric:

Authenticity

Academic Rigour

Active Exploration

Compassion

Assessment for Learning

Connecting with Experts

Elaborated Communication

If you’re familiar with the rubric, you’ll notice that Appropriate Use of Technology is absent from the list. This is because technology integration is embedded in each of these illustrative examples.
