Learning Science through Inquiry. 2000.
8 one-hour video on demand programs. Inquiry-based teaching, central to the National Science Education Standards and the Benchmarks for Science Literacy, should not be an isolated occurrence, but a comprehensive and ongoing approach.

This workshop shows inquiry teaching and learning in action, with real teachers and students in real classrooms. Whether you have already experimented with inquiry teaching and want to enhance your practice, or are new to the approach and want to know how to make it work, this workshop will help you understand the process and how it benefits students, and give you strategies to use in your classroom. Workshop 1. What is inquiry and why do it? -- Workshop 2. Setting the stage: creating a learning community -- Workshop 3. The process begins: launching the inquiry exploration -- Workshop 4. Focus the inquiry: designing the exploration -- Workshop 5. The inquiry continues: collecting data and drawing upon resources -- Workshop 6.
