Conducting Inquiry To Better Understand How To Teach Inquiry

Inquiry-based learning is an important component of educational experiences. Although teacher candidates are exposed to inquiry learning throughout their teacher certification program, they have had few experiences with inquiry-based learning during their own K-12 educational settings and field experience placements. Candidates were given the opportunity to further encounter inquiry learning by conducting an investigation during their science methods course. They chose one topic of interest, posed multiple questions and conducted a three to five-week inquiry. Teacher candidates will share their research findings with the College community.
