Drawing from his many years of experience, p4cHI founder Dr. Thomas Jackson (Dr. J) shares some of his most memorable moments and significant realizations. These stories provide us with a vibrant and oftentimes inspirational perspective on where p4cHI has come from, what it is, and, indeed, on what it could be.
In this story Dr. J reflects on what makes a p4cHI inquiry special. A p4cHI inquiry is special, he concludes, because it arises out of the interests of the children and because no one, including the teacher, knows where the inquiry will lead.
I am, I have to admit, a little bit different. (But, then again, aren't we all?) I don't think I'm different in a bad way. But I tend to see things a little bit differently. Perhaps, in large part, this is because I like to make ideas my own. Ideas don't really makes sense to me until I think through them and fit them in with my experiences.
Welcome to this video in our series! In this video post we begin a six week series that goes through, step by step, the basic p4cHI "Plain Vanilla" method. Our group will show you how we use reading books as a stimulus for inquiry.
