23TRA546 How to Structure the Enquiry Process: CBA1 JC Geography

23TRA546 How to Structure the Enquiry Process: CBA1 JC Geography






Date:     Wednesday 20th September 2023
Time:     7 pm - 8 pm
Venue:  Online via Zoom

Decades of academic research clearly states that for novice learners’ inquiry-based learning is far less efficient and effective than explicit guidance accompanied by practice and feedback.  However, Junior Cycle CBA1: Geography in the News asks students to undertake an inquiry-based approach to preparing a response to a recent geographical event using media sources. The aim of this webinar is to demonstrate to teachers how to take an explicit instruction approach to scaffolding the inquiry process for students completing CBA1.

This webinar will provide teachers with a full set of resources to complete CBA1 in their classroom with their students. All attendees will receive a breakdown of to the CBA for students, a day-by-day plan of how to complete the CBA over the course of 3 weeks, and appropriate methodologies to be used with Junior Cycle Geography students. Additionally, Lee will walkthrough a student-centered booklet aimed to help student’s research relevant information before presenting the data in their response and reflect on the process throughout.
