Inquiry Circles in Action

Inquiry Approach vs. Coverage Approach

This article focuses on four different classrooms around the United States and compares what a common theme among the teaching and learning projects are.

Conclusions were made that students were engaged, activated and motivated throughout these different classrooms. Inquiry projects dive deep into getting students to think critically about what they are doing and why, resulting in them being more active participants throughout the teaching.

“Before this project, I would never have thought I could read this stuff”

This quote from the article was powerful to me because it really shows that confidence is built when students facilitate their own learning and guide themselves through their own thoughts and values
