"Reading an Object": Developing Effective Scientific Inquiry Using Student Questions
Hynes-Berry, Mary; Berry, Gordon
European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, v2 n2 p87-97 2014
We explore the power of allowing students to construct their own conceptual understanding as they "read an object" in a series of guided inquiry steps, developing their own questions about the object. Their ownership of questions increases the learner's engagement and results in more efficacious learning and meets the standards of quality intellectual work and meaningful lifelong learning, as opposed to school-based "mastery learning" for the test.
