Inquiry-Based Story Curriculum
Our Story Curriculum uses a distinct learning methodology that engages children with inquiry-based topics that children are enthusiastic about. Reading exciting stories triggers a child’s curiosity to ask questions.
To find answers to these questions, children actively desire to read, to sense, to experience, and to explore. They also spontaneously utilize their language, drawing, writing, body language, and creativity to express their findings. In the meantime, children will be driven to new questions that they are interested in, which leads to new projects of learning and exploration. Therefore, finding answers to questions is the process of self-challenging, self-accomplishing, and problem-solving for children. Children’s questions are raised from stories, and the topics are related to their everyday lives and existing knowledge. In this way, new knowledge is concrete, understanding, and meaningful to them. While seeking answers to the questions, children gain experiences and also obtain problem-solving skills. This process allows them to construct their own “knowledge tree.”
