For educators who seek to enhance their effectiveness and make a difference for all of the students they serve, this book will be an invaluable resource and guide."
“This is a book that will help you become the inquiry teacher you need to be.”
"Experience Inquiry is an excellent book for demystifying how to promote inquiry in the classroom. It's also a clarion call for building strong personal bonds between teacher and student.
“Kimberly has given us a 'field guide' to uncover, unpack and enjoy the nobility that is teaching. Her gift is a joyful discomfort that challenges all of us to better actualize the gifts we pledge to the students we serve… best enjoyed in the company of your colleagues.”
"More than a good, engaging read, Experience Inquiry is an experiential challenge for educators and educational leaders committed to creating schools where students 'do most of the question-asking and answer-seeking.' Kimberly Mitchell has provided a fun, accessible way for all of us to reflect on our own capacity for inquiry and in the process become better listeners and learners—which ultimately makes for better teachers."
"Are you ready to experience authentic inquiry? Experience Inquiry takes you on a reflective, inquiry-based learning journey to bring clarity to what educators have wrestled with since John Dewey’s time: the nebulousness of 'inquiry.' Kimberly masterfully engages you in what effective inquiry-based teaching and learning looks like, sounds like, and feels like.
"While there is much talk about inquiry-based teaching, Kimberly Mitchell walks the walk in this highly practical, easy-to-read manual for inquiry in 21st-century teaching and learning. Unlike most other books on the topic, Mitchell doesn't stop at how to engage in more inquiry-based teaching and learning; she takes the unique step of walking educators through their own inquiry-based self-reflections and evaluations.
"What a thoughtful and generous book! Experience Inquiry is an amazing resource for teachers who are curious about bringing inquiry immediately into their classrooms – whether implementing w/their “beginner mind” or improving their daily practice."
“Experience Inquiry is a ‘must have’ workbook for new teachers and teachers who want to come to the work anew. It’s refreshing to find a book that asks us to pause, think, and reflect for ourselves.”
"The shift from 'what' and 'how to' to 'why' and 'what if' is a must for 21st century educators, and Experience Inquiry provides a powerful, but practical framework for any educator to join education's long overdue critical thinking revolution."
"Kimberly Mitchell is a fabulous teacher and coach who has managed to create in Experience Inquiry a book as engaging for readers as the classrooms she envisions are for students. It’s a must-read if you’re looking for support on your path towards helping your students gain the curiosity, understanding, and creativity to shape a better future."
"This book will help you grow your own ideas about what it means to do inquiry. It will help you learn more about yourself and your students by inviting you to work through a set of thought-provoking and practical exercises. Invite your colleagues along in this journey and you’ll find yourselves taking new steps towards envisioning and creating inquiry-based classrooms."
“With skill and grace, Mitchell navigates the important questions that teachers – and all educators – should be asking themselves. Deeply personal, reflective, and inspirational, Experience Inquiry is a treasure-trove of carefully-crafted, eminently practical ideas for improving the practice of teaching. Bravo!”
"Kimberly has translated the latest terminology—pedagogical jargon—into lively language and useful advice that will strike a chord for classroom teachers! She 'gets it.'"
“Mitchell's book is honest and while it could have been full of 'eduspeak', it is not. It is real, focused, and to the point. Full of suggestions on how to implement and refine your inquiry practice, this book is inspiring and practical. As a life-long learner myself, this book helped me share in the enthusiasm kids have for learning. From the perspective of a teacher, it's a toolkit we should all make our own!”
"Experience Inquiry is full of tangible strategies for fostering inquiry with students of any age. Kimberly Mitchell has knocked it out of the park with this book- it's highly readable, accessible and chock full of great information. I loved the practical exercises that allow you to try as you go. This is a must read for teachers looking to use inquiry-based teaching in the classrooms. Buy this book today and read it with your team."
"So many people fancy themselves experts on teaching, but few of them have the wisdom of Kimberly Mitchell. Her ceaseless focus on inquiry and call for teachers to 'talk less and ask more' are some of simplest, but powerful pieces of wisdom I've come across in my decade plus in the classroom."
"Kimberly Mitchell has put together a powerful book at a key time in the evolution of how we teach, and how students learn. Central to the purpose of this book is the understanding that creating a culture of inquiry begins with the teacher. Many educators know this, but may not have had the opportunity, or the guidance, to really explore what this means for them, their habits, and their practices. This book does just that.
