Teacher Inquiry plays an important role in the research mission of the school and plays a critical role in school improvement. Teachers engage in classroom-based research projects throughout the year and share findings and new questions in a culminating round-table event. Inquiry topics grow out of questions of practice from within the classroom and range from reading to technology to non-traditional AP students. P.K. Yonge faculty engage in their own formalized inquiry research projects throughout the year or collaborate with inquirer colleagues to hone wonderings/questions, analyze data, and describe findings.
Dr. Mickey MacDonald is the P.K. Yonge Inquiry Teacher Leader who partners with administration to ensure the ongoing development and health of Teacher Inquiry at P.K. Yonge.
