In this online course, students will participate in a book study of Cultivating Curiosity in K-12 Classrooms: How to Promote and Sustain Deep Learning by Wendy Ostroff.  This book study will explore how teachers can make time in their busy class schedules to allow students the opportunity to be curious, creative, and driven by inquiry.  Participants will collaboratively discuss ideas and strategies from the book in online discussion forums, reflect on their teaching practice by writing journal entries, and will make an action plan to incorporate curiosity into the classroom.  This course is appropriate for all K-12 teachers and others involved in education.   

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Recognize how to promote curiosity in students and make the classroom a place of exploration.
  • Implement strategies that allow students to use their creative minds and inquiry skills to help them to engage in deeper learning.
  • Develop effective lessons that encourage students to hone their curiosity in the classroom.
  • Establish and maintain structures that help to integrate creativity in the classroom and class curriculum.

    I would recommend this book to any principal who runs a book study group at his/her school. Kids need more chances to explore and play and less of "sit down and be quiet"

    Great background info and many useful strategies that can be incorporated immediately in your classroom.
