Handbook on Inquiry Teaching for Elementary School Social Studies.
Elementary teachers and principals enrolled in an elementary education graduate course developed this guide which interprets and applies the concept of inquiry teaching and learning. The purpose of the guide is to bridge the gap between the theory of the inquiry process and its use in the classroom. It is written for use by elementary educators as a model for their teaching methods as well as the construction of social studies learning activities. The first of the two major sections of the guide is designed to introduce teachers to the inquiry method of teaching and learning. Answers to basic questions about inquiry are provided and each step of the process is explained. The second section provides examples of applications of the inquiry process. Each step of the process is explained with a discussion of teacher behavior and samples of implementation activities. The bibliography lists related books, periodical articles, and pamphlets.
