Nudging toward Inquiry: Re-Envisioning Existing Research Projects
Fontichiaro, Kristin
School Library Monthly, v26 n1 p17-19 Sep 2009
There has been a significant spike among school librarians in talk about the process of learning since the 2007 release of the "Standards for the 21st-Century Learner" by the American Association of School Librarians. How do children really learn best? The AASL Standards make it clear that 21st-century school librarianship is not just about teaching a set of "skills;" it is about being a partner in powerful, inquiry-fueled learning. Students flourish when they are given time and space to explore ideas. Nudging toward inquiry can be the first step. (Contains 1 table.)
