Inquiry Strategies of High School Biology Students.
Mid-Continent Regional Educational Lab., Inc., Kansas City, MO.
Included are edited transcripts of a number of individual interviews with randomly selected high school biology students presented for educators who wish to study inquiry processes. Students were introduced to an interesting, but unexplained biological phenomenon through a brief printed account. They were asked to state how they would proceed to investigate a possible explanation of this phenomenon. They could ask the resource person (a staff member from a wildlife center or university) for any information which would ordinarily be found in a scientific report, but could not expect procedural guidance from him. Topics were as follows: unexplained bird mortality, food preferences of newly hatched snakes, bird aggression, and birth defects in two isolated villages in Central America. Each interview lasted about one hour. [Not available in hardcopy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (Author/AL)
