Inquiry in Science: From Curiosity to Understanding.
DuVall, Rick
Primary Voices K-6, v10 n1 p3-9 Aug 2001
Considers how if students' curiosity is dismissed, children can develop passivity and grow into unquestioning adults, the opposite of most educators' goal of helping children develop into lifelong learners. Claims that inquiry: flourishes in highly structured classrooms; involves building personal background knowledge and using materials wisely; involves teacher being active in their classrooms; and involves reading, writing, listening, and speaking.
