About this course:
The Second Inquiry focuses on the development of content area expertise, as well as the art of using a variety of instructional strategies. With the mentorship of their onsite Support Provider, candidates will choose an English Language Learner student as a focus student, requiring candidates to complete an in-depth study of the student's language strengths and weaknesses; and identify research based accommodations for that student. In addition, candidates will carefully examine student work, identify areas of growth, and choose an inquiry question that will directly address the areas of growth identified. Candidates will assess student growth at the completion of the unit of study by administering a summative assessment, and in particular, assess the focus student's growth in language development. This Inquiry is aligned to CSTP 3-Understanding and Organizing Subject Matter for Student Learning, and CSTP 4-Planning Instruction and Designing Learning Experiences for All Students. This course is completely field based. All activities and writing reflections will be conducted in the candidate's classroom and school by the candidate and his/her Support Provider. All Inquiry forms will be placed in the Induction Portfolio as evidence of meeting the CSTPs and Induction standards, as well as growth in professional practice.
