Observations of Urban Middle School Students Engaged in Technology-Supported Inquiry.
Taines, Cynthia; Schneider, Rebecca; Blumenfeld, Phyllis C.
The need for the exploration of phenomena in students' daily lives requires effective approaches in inquiry-based science education for minority and urban students. There are few descriptions of students' initial attempts at inquiry, especially among urban school students. This study focuses on seventh and eighth grade students, and investigates the behavioral patterns of students when engaged in initial attempts at inquiry supported by technology. (YDS)
