Inquiry learning is based on constructivist theory, where learning is seen as a social process involving a mutual exploration of ideas through experiences and language (Cross, 1996). Alternate inquiry models include TELSTAR, the Action Research Model and Integrating Socially. A number of Inquiry Learning models and resources are also available to educators online, including the below model sourced from Education Jargon Wiki. The NSW Board of Studies promotes the teaching of HSIE through inquiry based learning processes that require students to seek information, analyse sources, pose questions and discover answers. A Samoan fale is a home, a community, church, and a safe environment that provides a sense of belonging, leadership, and spirituality. Our Pasifika cultural models operate as a hierarchical system, but the irony is that we breathe and live from the bottom up philosophy. The culture of a child cannot enter the classroom until it has first entered the consciousness of the teacher. In the current age, it is most common that many of our Pasifika peoples have mixed races, cultures, and ethnic backgrounds, and many of them are trying to navigate a way through establishing their identity, looking for some sense of cultural belonging. In our Pasifika way of life, this is the most crucial point of the structure, because, here lies the purpose of community, service, (Ako) reciprocity, respect and inclusiveness. Without appropriate professional development and relevant resources that utilises parent, family, and community support, the Samoan fale will have weak pillars that will continue to show barriers to learning. Finally, I want to give a big shout out to all our Pasifika communities who at the time of writing this post are frantically preparing for their biggest day on the calendar year, White Sunday (October 12th), held every 2nd Sunday of October. Thank you Anthony for a fantastic blog, to remind all of us who we are and that we have an opportunity to help make a difference for Pasifika Learners.

During Inquiry Learning the teacher becomes a co-learner, working together with students to investigate a topic and guiding students through their inquiry with the use of appropriate scaffolding.
All three of these models are detailed in this document produced by the Queensland Curriculum Council. From this structure, then, the Samoan fale serves, for example, respect, reciprocity, and inclusive values. Identity (social construction — people decide what type of Pasifika person that they are). In this phase, teachers may find it problematic to build that relationship because of the complexity of these cultural diversities. The most effective way to promote achievement in your classroom — is to first cultivate a culture of learning, and a culture of success in your classroom in your school and pedagogy. Prior to joining CORE Education, he was the Head of Sports and Physical Education at Chisnallwood Intermediate, organising sporting programmes for over 700 students. Inquiry pedagogy therefore, is based around a set of teaching and learning strategies that involve student-centred research and investigation that encourages metacognitive thought processes, discussion and collaboration. In the classroom Inquiry Learning means student-centred hands-on activities, which relate to real life situations and events. Their world changes once they enter their classrooms, and they quickly change their lens and adapt accordingly to the environment. If schools can make connections with our ways of life, then the future of Pasifika learners will not only contribute fully to Aotearoa’s social, cultural, and economic well-being, but will also fulfil the dreams of our parents, grandparents, and ancestors to become Pasifika leaders.

Carroll defines Inquiry Pedagogy as an understanding about society and its interactions that "requires us to seek out knowledge as well as apply historical skills to determine why events occurred and what motivated the people to take the action they took" (2012).
Inquiry Learning not only encourages students to actively construct their own knowledge and bring personal ideas and concepts to the learning experience, but encourages them to make changes in their attitudes and behaviours (Kuhlthau, Maniotes, & Caspari, 2007). I will do my best to unpack my Pasifika mind by using a Samoan fale as an analogy to offer ideas of how cultural values is crucial to a building structure, mentally, physically, and socially. Schools that have inclusive values such as respect, belonging, and service, to name a few, have connected immediately with their Pasifika learners and communities.
If this is beyond the scope of your normal practice, this could be an opportunity to create an inquiry for your practice.
It validates the reasons why our Pasifika parents left the Pacific Islands to seek opportunities here in Aotearoa. From 2007 to 2009, Anthony taught at Aranui High School as a Homeroom Teacher for at-risk students in years 9 and 10. On the other hand, some Pasifika learners will disengage because their cultural values haven’t been recognised or respected appropriately. Anthony believes that, "IT is a tool that can create educational possibilities to enjoy and share with others from different backgrounds, and find a common purpose to learn together".
