My school provided every teacher with this book as a resource to drive inquiry based learning in the classroom last year. This book breaks down inquiry and project based learning into manageable daily mini lessons as well as short-term and long-term projects for the classroom. I highly recommend this book for those looking to drive innovation in their classrooms and schools and looking for a tangible place to start.
In the Authors' words:
"This book is about small-group projects that work. It's about combining what we know about the research process, about thinking, and about people working together to create a structure that consistently supports kids to build knowledge that matters in their lives."
