Student Motivation and Inquiry [19:18]


In this video, educators Barbara Stripling and Judi Moreillon discuss ways to motivate students and help them engage in deeper inquiry. As Moreillon points out, it's not easy: "Today, students, and all of us adults, we want things to be quick and easy, and inquiry is anything but quick and easy. It's messy. It takes commitment. It takes work. So motivating people of all ages to ask questions and pursue knowledge and facts can be challenging." Both Moreillon and Stripling have risen to this challenge, and share their insights here.
