The Inquiry Matrix: A Tool for Assessing and Planning Inquiry in Biology and Beyond
Grady, Julie
Science Teacher, v77 n8 p32-37 Nov 2010
One way to advance inquiry in the classroom is to establish a systematic strategy for reflecting on our practice and our students' readiness to engage in increasingly complex scientific reasoning. The Matrix for Assessing and Planning Scientific Inquiry (MAPSI) is a tool that promotes this valuable reflection so that we, as teachers, are better equipped to engage students in inquiry. This article describes the MAPSI tool and how it was used to plan inquiry experiences in a high school biology class. (Contains 2 figures and 1 online resource.)
