Falk and Blumenreich write in a way that is teacher friendly, jargon-free, and accessible to all. Direct quotes and summaries of studies from real teachers in real classrooms help to authenticate the main points presented by the authors. User- friendly activities and templates are offered to assist teacher researchers with the processes of identifying, gathering, and analyzing data. Although the focus is on teacher inquiry, a significant portion of the text also addresses the facilitation of student inquiry. The Power of Questions is an excellent introduction for those new to the world of teacher research. In addition, those who have experienced the exhilaration of classroom inquiry will enjoy the fresh insight from the authors.
