PYP PE Model for Inquiry Revised
Based on excellent feedback from Derek Pinchbeck, my PYP coordinator, and Joey Feith (founder of www.thePhysicalEducator.com), I have revised the model of inquiry that I had posted a few days ago. I think that with the feedback given, I have made the model a bit clearer to understand. If you look at the "model for inquiry in PE" blog entry I did last week compared to now, you will be able to notice the differences. Find below the revised version of this model. Thanks Derek and Joey for the feedback!

Hi Andy, great start to a very interesting idea! My only question relates to whom the model is oriented, it appears more oriented for yourself (an organizer for teachers) except for phase 5 which is obviously what you want your students to do. The best of the various models I've used as a homeroom teacher develop stages/descriptions that serve as an organizer for teachers and students. This then provides students with a model for organizing their own learning around the central idea. The inclusion of the arrow at the bottom shows that it's an iterative process, allowing students to ask questions throughout the unit is critical. I look forward to hearing more about how its implementation enables student growth and understanding, Keep us posted!
