Online Submission
Enquiry, Inquiry, Problem Solving etc. are all different terms describing one outcome, that is creating an environment where students are driven by curiosity, involved and in charge of their learning. The problem of a traditional classroom has always been that students are spoon fed with information and most of it is lost in time if it is not used and applied. This paper introduces enquiry based learning and explores the important factors that assist teachers in using it easily in their classrooms. This document reviews selected studies articles to try to produce simplified a document to assist teachers in using inquiry-based learning in their classrooms. This paper will assist not only teachers but also school leaders in defining the most important criteria for preparing and conducting a classroom rich with enquiry based learning. The study may also assist them in identifying strategies to help make the classroom environment more enquiry driven. This will in turn enable students to investigate and develop their potentials based on their own unique interests. Providing students with such an environment will encourage them to become valuable contributors in the school as well as in their communities.
