Anderson Elementary School


In 2017/18 our inquiry question was will a focus on the Thinking Competencies help support;

How we help students understand the big idea?

How we help students make connections?

       - To what they are learning

       - To the world in general

       - To other subject areas

How we help students reflect on their learning? 

Now, in 2018/19 our evidence suggests that a focus on thinking and talking about ideas and where they come from has created a shift in teaching and learning to

       - A highlighting of and connection to big ideas as a central pillar from which curriculum is explored (What are the big ideas you are learning about?)

       - The why of what we are teaching and what students are learning (Why is what you are learning important?)
