What Inquiry means to me!

What inquiry means to me is that it is open and it has no answers that is easily found in a textbook.  It is engaging.  Inquiry is fun and it is elastic because sometimes you can bounce back to were you started from and other times you can stretch it to the limits!  My students do well after the initial period of where is the test? phase; especially my special needs students, they find more success with inquiry.  They become in some instances the leaders.  They realize that their input counts and they get approval from the others in their group.

Key components: role model how to be an inquirer; give successful moments; make sure the students know what is expected(rubrics); follow through with ideas;role model, I repeat role model everything!
