Teaching as Inquiry

The teaching staff at Pt England School are engaging in Teaching as inquiry as a part of their PD.
As a beginning teacher it seems a little odd inquiring into my teaching practice as I'm still trying to figure out what exactly my practice is. What's great is I can use this as an opportunity to create my initial teaching practices.

My Inquiry:
What can I do as a teacher to develop the behavioural engagement of my students in order to enhance their cognitive engagement.

To guide my Inquiry I will be looking at research around the Te Kotahitanga program that looks a raising Maori student's learning and achievement. I will also be observing various teachers within the school, taking note on their behavioural engagement strategies.
