Welcome! The Inquiry Page is more than a website. It's a dynamic virtual community
where inquiry-based education can be discussed, resources and experiences shared, and
innovative approaches explored in a collaborative environment.
Here you can search a growing database of inquiry units,
and you can also build your own inquiry units.
You can see pictures of inquiry-based activities and
learn more about some of our partners who use inquiry methods.
Learn how to assess and evaluate inquiry-based education or
look for more inquiry resources to support what you're doing.
Or you can simply find out more about what inquiry and
The Inquiry Page are all about.
Based on John Dewey's philosophy that
education begins with the curiosity of the learner, we use a spiral path of inquiry:
creating new knowledge as we gather information,
discussing our discoveries and experiences,
and reflecting on our new-found knowledge.
Each step in this process naturally leads to the next: inspiring new questions,
investigations, and opportunities for authentic "teachable moments."
