WHAT DID YOU LEARN?
This part of the learning guide focuses on reflecting and showcasing your work through the inquiry learning process. Your learning would not be complete without reflecting on the inquiry process to celebrate and share your learning with others. How will you choose to share your work? Who will you choose to share it with? These are some questions that you must consider in this stage of your learning journey. Will you share your inquiry with family, friends, teachers, classmates, your school, students across the district, the community, or even a global audience? What you decide, should determine the amount of effort and work you put in to refine your work and to create a presentation worthy of the audience you seek.
