The Power of Teacher Inquiry Groups - SALSA Presents #2

About this event

By Dr. Linda Kroll and Dr. Daniel Meier

Please join Linda and Daniel for the next webinar in their 2021 series on the new SALSA book, Learning Stories and Teacher Inquiry Groups.

Chapter 1

Linking Inquiry, Documentation, and Reflection: The Power of Teacher Inquiry Groups

This webinar defines teacher inquiry, reflection, and documentation, and describes the basic goals, structure, and benefits of teacher inquiry groups.

In placing a special emphasis on inquiry groups, the webinar will show how regular, systematic group meetings at early childhood sites provide a collaborative, supportive forum for teachers to present their ongoing inquiry work and learning stories.


Learning Stories and Teacher Inquiry Groups, Reimagining Teaching and Assessment in Early Childhood Education in North America is co-authored by SALSA members - Annie White, Isauro Michael Escamilla, Linda Kroll and Daniel Meier. It is being published by NAEYC and due for release around June, 2021. The book can be pre-ordered on Amazon here.

SALSA is a non-profit Learning Story advocacy group. Learn more and/or join SALSA here. Educa is a proud sponsor of SALSA, supporting their Pacific Northwest Conference and partnering to present the national virtual conference in October.
