Enquiry Materials in Science Teaching.
Connelly, F. Michael
Three ways in which the term "inquiry" is used are discussed: inquiry as a teaching method, inquiry as a mode of learning and inquiry as a logical disciplinary process. The role of guiding principles of inquiry is analyzed, using a discussion of Harvey's work on the heart to illustrate an inquiry guided by the idea of structure-function. It is argued that guiding principles of inquiry influence problems, facts, hypotheses, interpretations and outcomes. A discussion method is described aimed at teaching an understanding of inquiry as logic. Materials which can be used for "inquiry into inquiry" are listed. (EB)
