In this seminar, candidates must analyze an inquiry approach to education and its relation to their current practices. They must examine the connections between inquiry, teaching, learning, and the standards of accomplished teaching. The portfolio entry requires a video in which candidates are asked to document a class meeting where students are learning through inquiry based instruction. Documentation takes the form of a 20 minute video edited into three sections. Section one shows how the lesson is introduced. Section two records students engaged in inquiry learning. Finally , section three records the lesson's closure. The analysis focuses on the available evidence from the video; specifically, how the candidate's actions (or inaction's) resulted in student learning. The portfolio entry is limited to 12 pages.
