Each year, all PDS partners are encouraged to apply for a mini-grant to support a classroom-based inquiry projects. The projects need to involve school personnel, college faculty and preservice teachers. Mini-grant activities need to:
- Focus on a question to answer or a problem to solve
- Choose a classroom or whole school intervention to implement
- Collect and analyze student data
- Identify and describe changes that occurred as a result of the intervention
Topics often vary based on areas of teacher need and interest. Annual findings from inquiry projects are presented during our Partner Celebration Dinner held on campus each May.
