Overview

When led effectively, inquiry-based instruction leads
to higher
order thinking. Developing, Assessing, and Sustaining
Inquiry-Based
Instruction is a practical book that presents a
clear, research-based
guide to help teachers and other educational leaders
dramatically
improve their practice and, ultimately, increase student
achievement. The authors have given teachers and
educational
leaders down-to-earth assistance that realistically
merges theory
and practice. Specifically, they provide a
well-tested model for
inquiry, a web tool that frames the development and
implementation
of inquiry-based lessons, and an instrument to assess
the quality of
inquiry. In addition, the authors present suggestions
for incremental
change with realistic targets, and they deal head-on
with issues of
classroom management and the resistance that often
arises when
trying to implement meaningful change. This book is a
"must" for
teachers and educational leaders who expect
excellence in their
teaching performance and in student achievement.
