If you ever feel that students are too passive in their learning and too ready to accept any information as "fact," then here's a book that explains how you can address those concerns in daily instruction.
Learn questioning strategies and teaching behaviors that are more apt to encourage students to think, investigate, and draw their own conclusions. Explore how to use writing assignments, field trips, and museums to stimulate creative and critical thinking. And discover ways to improve your students' abilities to question what they read in texts and on the Internet.
Guidelines for how to design and assess an inquiry-based curriculum are included, with tips on how schools can become communities of inquiry, where educators and students work together to solve problems and become active citizens.
