Having a discussion with a colleague, we found ourselves asking, “What does community inquiry look like here in our region?” Building a community inquiry lab isn’t a solo & siloed venture; no “one and done” program be this. We began to wrestle with the who, what, and why of any community work in which we engage.
I found myself returning to Chip’s post as a way to frame and move the conversation beyond dry definitions, and toward “living the literacies” into being. Inquiry can be too abstract, at times, to be meaningful. Chip’s post gets to this idea that educators, librarians, and citizens at core are bridging theory and action everyday.
