Teachers in the Making Inquiry Possible films deserve stars on an Educators Walk of Fame. Summer, Sarah, Ryan, Ryan, and their colleagues opened their classrooms and, and despite the chaos of the beginning of the pandemic in February/March 2020, they showed us inquiry grit! Portrayals of social studies teachers often make a silly or inane caricature of educators. Not this cast!
Behind the scenes footage would reveal boom microphones, multiple cameras, and extensive lighting packages invading their classroom and meeting spaces. Without flinching, these teachers walked right into the spotlight and articulated the why and the what of meaningful, inquiry-based social studies instruction. What you see in these films is the very best of the profession.
