Integrating Inquiry and Learning Stories: A Focus on Socialization, Play, and Language

Examples of different Learning Stories created by teachers in inquiry groups show the teachers’ processes in creating, sharing, and commenting on learning stories focused on children’s social development and play.

The discussion will highlight the different roles that colleagues play in providing feedback, suggestions, and next steps in the creation of learning stories that capture essential elements of children’s social growth and discovery-based play.

This is Chapter 4 of the SALSA book, Learning Stories and Teacher Inquiry Groups, which can be ordered on the NAEYC site or on Amazon.
