Moving From What to What If? highlights AIW
John Barell’s new work, Moving From What to What If?: Teaching Critical Thinking with Authentic Inquiry and Assessments, offers compelling examples of classrooms that invite students to question and to work collaboratively with each other and their teachers on meaningful problems and towards meaningful learning goals. This is a terrific resource across subject areas for nurturing students' authentic intellectual work. John devotes one chapter to the AIW work in Pike County (GA) Schools.
