Inquire + Explore = Transformational Learning through Making

Inquiry learning and making, popular movements in school libraries today, embody two AASL Shared Foundations: Inquire and Explore. What happens when making is integrated into inquiry learning within the curriculum? In this session, a team of four school librarians and a district supervisor will offer new perspectives about the power of doing just that! Learn, practice, and leave with strategies, scaffolds and structures that champion transformational learning, innovation and coteaching.
