What is the Shared Inquiry™ method of learning? How does using it in Junior Great Books® programs help students read for deeper comprehension, ask incisive questions, and become more engaged with fiction and nonfiction texts? How does practicing the Shared Inquiry method build teaching skills?

Learn the answers to these and other important questions in our FREE webinar, An Overview of Shared Inquiry, on August 25!

In this interactive one-hour webinar, you will:

  • Participate in a rich Shared Inquiry discussion of “The Road Not Taken”
  • See exactly how Junior Great Books programs improve students’ reading comprehension, speaking and listening, writing, and collaboration skills
  • Learn how teachers inspire student participation through open-ended questioning
  • See how the Shared Inquiry method uses writing in every step of the learning process

This overview will provide details that demonstrate why students in schools that use our method and materials learn how to consider important ideas, find their voice, and develop a deep understanding of complex texts.

A group of teachers meet together via video conferencing for an overview of shared inquiry webinar

“When the answer is their own and they really have deep passion about their thoughts and their ideas, students really want to offer their text evidence to prove why they think what they think, and that’s exciting for them.”
