verolga, steve and janet's discussion

We talked about various inquiry-based approaches that Steve uses in his physics classes.  He never gives a direct answer to a question but rather guides the students to ask questions and to answer their own questions. 

We feel that inquiry learning is very reflective and opens a new box as the students are asked questions in response to their questions. 

We also talked about how inquiry learning is the furthest exploration of discovery learning. We talked about various ways to use music and personal creativity, which are great but can be just more creative ways of delivering info and having students send info back. Inquiry learning takes it even further in having the students identify the areas of study based on their questions.
