Lenses for Performance Inquiry.
Burkhart, Robert C.
This report describes a teacher training program which is based on an analysis of the inquiry process. The first chapter presents an operational construct of the inquiry process; method of program development and assessment through a phase analysis system; and a model for the structure of committees involved in program design, implementation, and assessment. The inquiry process is divided into five functions--conceptual, qualitative, procedural, suppositional, and evaluative--and each of the functions is related to the sensory, affective, and cognitive domains, yielding a total of 15 inquiry processes. The second chapter is an analysis of American cultural modes of response isolated into the 15 inquiry categories. The modes of response were determined by an analysis of 2,400 magazine advertisements. The third chapter is an open letter to parents exhorting them to interact with their children in ways that reflect an understanding of various inquiry processes. Chapter 4 lists children's books according to the inquiry process to which they relate. Chapter 5 sketches the history of the research underlying the development of the program, as well as the implementation and assessment of the program. (HMD)
