At times during the

At times during the institute I became very confused about what true inquiry was.  Through many lessons and the reading, I discovered that inquiry happens on many different levels.  Guided inquiry is still inquiry, we are still allowing students to explore and find their own ways of doing things.  I also learned the importance of "play" which is inquiry. Inquiry needs to be techer-led to some degree. When there is structure and inquiry we have "The Balance of Stories Model".
