Inquirying Minds

After reading some of the comments from the session, I am worried that we have a incomplete story of what Inquiry is and why inguiry is just one form of learning.  As teachers, we need to be able to have several degrees of inquiry.  Sometimes if we just allow our students to just think about what they think and express what they understand without the terminology we would see what they know is a lot .  And what they might need to know might not be that different.  Sometimes we bombard our students with so much terminology that they shut down before they even start. Take one step at a time!
