The Selection Process: The First Step of Teaching by the Inquiry Methodology.
Hoagland, Carl Weston
Presented is an empirical model used for the development and testing of one aspect of inquiry, the selection process. The methodology suggested enabled a qualified teacher to follow the rules and procedures as well as measure achievement according to the author's goals. The major goal for the field test was for the students (19 juniors) to make self-directed selections in areas in which she would inquire . Results used in evaluating the field test phase showed that none of the students was able to repeat the goal-defining process on her own. They were able to operationalize a goal to a level which allowed them to select learning opportunities. The selection process worked in varying degrees with the students in the group. Problems were most noticeable in the goal-defining process because the steps were not taught in such a manner that the students were able to re-use them. (Author/EB)
