Hero and Project Description: 

Bunn’s innovative teaching idea, “Inquiry Based Learning: Ecology,” focuses on stretching her students’ learning through an inquiry-based exploration into the effects of a changing environment on organism behavior. Bunn is highly aware of the importance of independent research and critical thinking in preparing her students for college and future careers. Through the program funded by the Voya grant, this inventive Ecology class project will mark the first time the students at Providence Cristo Rey High School will perform their own scientific investigation and piece together the various components of a multi-tiered science experiment. Through this project, Bunn hopes to instill relevant skills relating to research, hypothesis formulation, scientific methods and data analysis, all of which are lifelong learning behaviors that can be transferred beyond the classroom and into the workplace.
