Take a moment to reflect on your inquiry plan (calendar). Do you need to make any revisions to your original plan? If so, why? If you haven’t made any changes to your plan, why do you feel you have been so successful in sticking to it?
My original inquiry plan:
January 6: Complete proposal and rubric, post on my blog
January 7 – 13: Research and take notes
January 14 – 18: Research, compile notes, start planning presentation
January 19 – 20: Decide and plan presentation (how I want the product to be)
January 21 – 27: Create and edit video or Pecha Kucha, review notes resources
January 28 – 29: Present!
I feel that I need to revise my original schedule because my research took up a few more days than expected. Instead of compiling notes and starting my presentation on January 14th, I have used the last couple of classes for further research. Although I did not completely follow through with my original plan, I don’t regret using my time for extra research. My notes are quite detailed and thorough now, and I plan to compile and review my notes today and tomorrow during class. Today is January 15th, and originally, I was supposed to start compiling my notes yesterday and start organizing my presentation today. However, because of the slight shift in my schedule, I will not start my presentation until January 18th (this Friday). Other than this revision, I believe that my schedule is reasonable, and I am able to keep up with it.
