FOSIL and inquiry learning

Thanks to Jenny Toerien for delivering a brilliant twilight TeachMeet on inquiry learning and the use of Oakham School’s FOSIL model to support its implementation in the curriculum. Based on the research of Carol Kuhlthau and other preeminent thinkers in this area, plus evidence from the New York State Education Department, Oakham’s Framework of Skills for Inquiry Learning (FOSIL) provides a model of the inquiry process with an underlying framework of skills both of which help educators to support students engaged in inquiry. Jenny’s resources can be found here:
