Reconsidering the Character and Role of Inquiry in School Science: Analysis of a Conference
Grandy, Richard; Duschl, Richard A.
Science & Education, v16 n2 p141-166 Feb 2007
We summarize a conference on scientific inquiry bringing together science educators, cognitive scientists and philosophers of science with three goals: (1) to establish how much consensus exists about scientific inquiry; (2) to discuss implications of that consensus for teaching science; and (3) to identify areas where consensus is lacking to establish where further research and discussion would be most valuable.
