Re: New Definition of Inquiry

I now believe that Inquiry is still thinking about what you are thinking, but it now includes listening. I feel that you have to listen to others during inquiry...this will help trigger further thoughts for you as well as others. You are trying to understand what is going on overall. As a teacher, I really just want to trigger questions for thoughts for my students to get them to become explorers during science. Question their questions! That's what I have learned from this institute.
