Deweyan Inquiry: From Education Theory to Practice
Johnston, James Scott
SUNY Press
This book presents John Dewey's theory of inquiry and applies it to various areas of the primary, middle, and secondary school curricula. "Deweyan Inquiry" brings Dewey's theory of inquiry together with educational theory and practice. James Scott Johnston uses Dewey's late masterpiece "Logic: The Theory of Inquiry" as a guide and looks at inquiry in science and science education, social science and social science education, art and art education, and embodiment and physical education. He argues that inquiry is self-correcting, and that this makes Deweyan inquiry particularly useful for the always-changing educational milieu.
