Title: Inquiry Strategies for the Journey North Teacher
Url: http://www.learner.org/jnorth/tm/inquiry/menu.html
Publisher: Annenberg Media
Description: In an inquiry-oriented classroom, the teacher is a co-explorer and guide who cultivates curiosity and challenges students to think and act like scientists as they explore intriguing questions. It takes time, practice, and sometimes, a shift in teaching strategies, to create a classroom where inquiry can flourish. Explicit strategies should help both novice and experienced teachers create a climate for inquiry, support productive discussions, generate questions, plan investigations and gather data, guide consideration of evidence, and critically review research reports. Established in 1991 with a grant from the Annenberg Foundation to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Project uses media and communications to improve math and science education.
