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.


  1. I'm interested to follow what you discover.
    Have you noted any interesting impacts on student behavioural engagement in your observations so far?

  3. Te Kotahitanga is a great place to start - ka pai you! You've also got some great people to observe in your team in terms of behavioural engagement. There's a lot to get your head around as a PRT and you've made a great start. I'm looking forward to seeing you hone your practise throughout the year.
