Describes the development of children's enquiry skills, offering a rationale and a theoretical basis for teaching and learning using this approach and showing its relevance to scientific enquiries. De Boo (primary education, U. of Hertfordshire) shows how children's ideas can be supported, challenged, and assessed, and considers how to resource enquiries and expand these within the school and local environment. He also talks about how to promote and integrate problem-solving skills into class teaching, particularly in practical cross-curricular and technological projects. Distributed by Taylor & Francis.
