Turning Routine Exercises into Activities That Teach Inquiry: A Practical Guide
Dorée, Suzanne Ingrid
PRIMUS, v27 n2 p179-188 2017
How can we teach inquiry? In this paper, I offer practical techniques for teaching inquiry effectively using activities built from routine textbook exercises with minimal advanced preparation, including rephrasing exercises as questions, creating activities that inspire students to make conjectures, and asking for counterexamples to reasonable, but false, conjectures.
