Let's Fight for Inquiry Science!
Manley, James
Science and Children, v45 n8 p36-38 Apr 2008
In today's climate of standardized testing, the author shares his concern that colleagues who are currently implementing researched, inquiry-based science that awaken students' curiosity may soon be thwarted by mandated, time-consuming packaged programs. He encourages science educators to "fight" for inquiry-based science and includes some suggestions that can bolster their position when contending with administrators about this heated issue. (Contains a list of 5 resources.)
