  1. The Inquiry Method By Tina Waddy

  2. Questioning what we see around us. Space Travel Sea Exploration Man’s Origin Questioning how to make things better. Medical Industry Automotive Industry Robotics Modern Inventions Why the Inquiry Model?

  3. Formulate Predictions Organize and Interpret Data Communicate Findings Build Models Examine Patterns and Relationships Classify Information Draw Conclusions Interpret Evidence and Experimenting From the Classroom to the Real World

  4. Types of Inquiry • Structured Inquiry • Guided Inquiry • Open Inquiry • Student Directed Inquiry • Student Research Inquiry

  5. Implementation Teacher Responsibility Topic Questions Materials Instruction & Guidance Students Responsibility Results Looks Like Teacher provides the question in testable form. Teacher provides complete experimental design. Teacher and students analyze and interpret data. Teacher writes the results based conclusion as an example for students. Structured Inquiry

  6. Implementation Teachers Responsibility Topic Question Materials Procedures & Design (50%) Student Responsibility Procedures & Design (50%) Results Conclusion Looks Like Teacher provides the question in testable form. Teacher and student provide complete experimental design. Students analyze and interpret data. Student write the results based conclusion. Guided Inquiry

  7. Implementation Teacher Responsibility Topic Materials Students Responsibility Question Procedures & Design Results Conclusion Looks Like Students write the question in testable form. Students create complete experimental design. Students analyze and interpret data. Students write the results based conclusion. Open Inquiry

  8. Implementation Teacher Responsibility Topic Question (50%) Materials (50%) Students Responsibility Question (50%) Materials (50%) Procedure & Design Results Conclusion Looks Like Teacher and students write the question in testable form with teacher assistance. Students create complete experimental design. Students analyze and interpret data. Students write the results based conclusion. Student Directed Inquiry

  9. Implementation Teacher Responsibility Topic (50%) Students Responsibility Topic (50%) Question Materials Procedure & Design Results Conclusion Looks Like Students write the question in testable form. Students create complete experimental design. Students analyze and interpret data. Students write the results based conclusion. Student Research Inquiry

  10. Inquiry Continuum

  11. Inquiry Continuum Activity

  12. Strategies That Work

  13. Do’s Understand your students skill level and background knowledge. Know the state-based science standards. Match your topic to the appropriate inquiry-based strategy. Don’ts Stay away from topics like natural selection, or relativity. Pick topics that are peripherally related to science standards. Topics

  14. Know Your Phases

  15. Establish, Enforce, and Model High Standards Model Effective Use of Time Model Collaboration with Peers Model Save and Proper Use of Equipment Modeling is Key

  16. Collaboration Fuels Problem Solving Teach and Model Collaboration Make Expectation for Group Work Clear by Re-teaching Before Each Experiment Provide ongoing feedback about student interactions Work Smarter, Not Harder

  17. Don’t give too many hints. Don’t ask too many leading questions. Supply only what students need. Supply vs. Demand • Students will always look to you for the answers. • Students won’t learn how to think. • Reinforce the process of thinking and searching.

  18. Monitor Student Behavior and Comments Be Prepared to Offer Assistance Help Students Work Independently Be a good listener because comments and behavior tell exactly what students know and don’t know. Anticipated certain student comments. Provide structure by planning and modeling. Support and Guidance

  19. Holding Students Accountable Using Accountable Talk

  20. Summing it all up!
