b. Create: I can engage with new knowledge I have gained by following an inquiry-based process that includes using authoritative evidence to investigate my questions, filling any knowledge gaps I may have, and generating products which illustrate my learning.

c. Share: I can adapt, communicate, and exchange my learning product with others in a cycle that includes interacting with content designed and presented by others, providing constructive feedback, and sharing products with an authentic audience.

d. Grow: I can participate in an ongoing inquiry-based process by continually seeking new knowledge, engaging in sustained inquiry, enacting new understanding through real-world connections, and reflecting upon my learning to guide me through any informed decisions I make.
