Using Inquiry-Based Instruction to Teach Research Methods to 4th-Grade Students in an Urban Setting
Hamm, Ellen M.; Cullen, Rebecca; Ciaravino, Melissa
Childhood Education, v89 n1 p34-39 2013
When a college professor who teaches research methods to graduate education students was approached by a local public urban elementary school to help them teach research skills to 4th-graders, it was thought that the process would be simple--take what we did at the college level and differentiate it for the childhood classroom. This article will describe an action research project that was designed to facilitate best practice in teaching research methods to 4th-grade students in a large urban public school, and offer recommendations for childhood educators who wish to teach research skills to young students.
