Enquiring Minds
The Enquiring Minds programme revealed that students working in partnership with their teachers and playing a part in designing their own curriculum are more confident, engaged and positive about school. The Year 3 report, ‘Schools, Knowledge and Educational Change’, draws upon the detailed study of two schools implementing the programme. Providing an insight into the challenges, obstacles and opportunities experienced by the schools running the programme, the research is a valuable accompaniment to the practical guidebook which enables teachers to implement Enquiring Minds in their own schools.
