Term 1 Inquiry

My professional inquiry is based on work that I have already done. My hub has looked at how to get more agency and motivation in writing. Making the expectation very explicit and focusing on one element of writing. I will be using the information and student voice gathered in this inquiry to guide my Manaiakalani inquiry. Have a look at a video that my target group of year 6 boys and a few other learners created about our journey thus far.

Welcome to my Professional Blog

Hi there and welcome to my professional blog. I am new teacher to Stonefields Primary and have been teaching for 7 years. This is my third year in the Modern Learning Environment. I love having the flexibility of the learning space and utilising the strengths of my colleagues. I believe that learning is something that needs to be done with learners not to learners.

My Manaiakalani Inquiry Question is How does using design for real learning impact on motivation and lift writing achievement in year 6 boys?
