Collaborative Inquiry (CI)

Collaborative Inquiry (CI)

On Tuesday, September 4, Rocklin Academy teachers and instructional staff had a full day of professional learning. Staff members kicked off their day learning about NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards) practices from our district Science Instructional Coach, Beth Dixon. We experienced NGSS practices and explored ways to bring inquiry alive in the classroom!  Teachers were able to work collaboratively with their grade level teams to embed these practices into their science lessons.  In the afternoon, teachers were excited to begin digging into recent data to set the first Collaborative Inquiry goal of the year. A Collaborative Inquiry goal is identified based on student data and student need.  Once identified, teachers provide specific instruction that helps our students succeed through differentiated instruction. Please see below for all goals identified at each grade level. Also, please  look out for communication from your child’s teacher to learn how you can support your child’s learning at home.
