An Inquiry Unit is a way to represent the process of problem solving. Each unit starts with a guiding question and provides a space for activities of Investigation, Creation, Discussion, and Reflection. To create one, click on "Add a Unit" and fill out the form. Your Inquiry Unit can be marked as public or private and can easily be edited or deleted as you wish. You can also spin-off from another unit, creating a copy of it to adapt to your own needs. Inquiry Units can be lesson plans, individual or group investigations, research plans, student work, open questions, or pathfinders to information.

We encourage you to share and discuss what you're teaching and learning. Part of the whole inquiry process is sharing your experience with others, asking questions, and getting feedback from your peers. This unit page is one way to create community. For example, see a unit you like or have questions about? Email the creator of the unit. Or wonder how inquiry actually "works" in the classroom? Post a message to the community on the Dialogues page. If you have a problem finding a unit or just need help, email the Inquiry Page. We're here to support you.
