We will go over the QCI Table and what you need to add to this table. This table will be summatively assessed for your Shared Inquiry Prep. It is important that you complete it with detail and print it out prior to arriving to class on Thursday (A Blocks) or Friday (B Blocks).
About the use of the QCI table during the Summative Shared Inquiry:
You will be allowed to use the printed QCI Table during your Summative Shared Inquiry. All information on the QCI table must be relevant to the Shared Inquiry Discussion questions. You will turn these in at the end of class. You MAY NOT ADD to them during the Shared Inqiry-- you will be given a separate scratch piece of paper for recording ideas and thoughts you have during the Summative Shared Inquiry. You will be allowed to access your computer for looking something up or checking your "power" notes, but be careful as too much time on the laptop during the Shared Inquiry will waste time you could use in the discussion (it becomes a distraction).
