Remember the Where's Waldo? series? You could follow him on his adventures and try to find him in the illustrations.
I am excited to share that over the past 4 weeks collaborative inquiry is being used in several places throughout MNPS. Below are summaries and links to pages with more information, so we can learn more about how schools are using collaborative inquiry to support student success.
