ISBN13: 978-1929024759
ISBN10: 1929024754

Summary: This book speaks to teachers and their students -- with text sections written by teachers and students -- describing a myriad of classroom experiences with inquiry. It addresses literacy learning within an inquiry framework at the middle level and draws on the authors' past experiences as middle level teachers who used an inquiry framework with their students. Through student examples; photos of student work; stories of student concerns and processes at the various s
tages of inquiry; instructional activities, engagement, and invitations, and cognitive strategies for literacy development across the four major content areas (language arts, math, science, the social studies), it helps you develop more confident and competent literacy learners at the middle level. The emphasis is on literacy learning across the curriculum and there are invaluable assessment forms and processes, plus helpful appendices listing teacher resources, multiple materials for student use, and Web site addresses.
  • Unique story boxes are included in which teachers and students share stories describing their work and concerns with particular inquiry and literacy processes included in the cycle.
  • The authors re-envision the inquiry cycle, which explicitly connects the various inquiry processes along the cycle.
  • The book considers how students may proceed through an inquiry cycle in differing ways and proposes that an inquiry framework is learning centered and allows students and teachers a voice.
