Initiating Inquiry with Pre-Service Elementary Teachers.
Faichney, G. W.; Needham, R. L.
This conference paper reports on research related to inquiry and how to infuse this approach into teacher training for pre-service elementary teachers. By using personal experiences of a three month visit to California elementary schools and a driving tour of England, these experiences are correlated to inquiry training with a model adapted from Chandler/Taba research work. Social studies curriculum documents of Australia are employed, including "Social Education in the Nineties: A Basic Right For Every Person," to illustrate how this approach can be used to address the goals and objectives specified for the subject in Australia.
