Inquiry submissions were due by Dec. 15, 2019. If you do not see your school listed, please use the form below to submit your inquiry proposal for 2019 – 2020.

The Spiral of Inquiry provides the framework for Network schools to be curious about and (1) scan for what is going on for their learners, to develop a (2) focus for their team inquiry, to explore (3) hunches about what is leading to this situation (good and bad) for learners, to identify areas for (4) new learning, to (5) take action, and to (6) check how much difference these new actions are making to learners.

This Inquiry Proposal Submission is based on the first four stages of the spiral of inquiry. The case study (submitted upon completion of this inquiry) will include a description of the actions you took throughout the year and the ways in which you checked to determine whether or not you made enough of a difference to your learners. Make sure you are clear on what indicators you will use during the checking phase well before you reach that stage.

In preparing your submission (due Dec. 15, 2019), please refer to The Spiral Playbook, the 4 Key Questions for Scanning and Checking, as well as other resources available on the NOIIE website – and please make sure to share these resource with your team members, particularly those who may be new to inquiry.
