Deeper learning starts with inquiry

LaunchPacks enables schools and districts to facilitate a culture of inquiry-based learning in their classrooms.

Nothing motivates students more than their own curiosity! Through effective inquiry, students discover real questions about academic topics that lead to critical thinking, reflection, collaboration, creation, and sharing. Inquiry-based learning gives K-12 students voice and choice in learning that sparks deeper understanding and engagement.

Watch this webinar with Dr. Leslie Maniotes, author and senior consultant from BLV Consulting, as she introduces you to Guided Inquiry Design (GID), a research-backed instructional design for inquiry-based learning founded at Rutgers University, and how to use Britannica LaunchPacks to keep students engaged in their learning across social studies and science disciplines.

“Just being able to provide students with the same content and information, but written at appropriate levels for their ability has been huge. Kids, especially during distance learning, don’t even realize that they have a ‘different’ document. They feel the same as others, which in high school, is essential.”
