The companion book to Sophia's Question - Thinking Stories for Australian Children, the Sophia's Question - Teacher Resource Book is designed to help teachers develop an inquiring classroom community, in which students use questioning, justification, conceptual exploration and reasoning to explore issues and ideas together.
To assist in this process, the Teacher Resource Book contains explanatory notes, discussion plans, exercises and activities that teachers can use to help students explore the many significant and thought-provoking topics that will arise when working with Sophia's Question.
