Front Cover
SAGE Publications, May 24, 2007 - Education - 289 pages
In this revised edition, Douglas Llewellyn focuses on teaching science through an inquiry-based process, showing teachers how to implement inquiry using the three "Rs" of inquiry--restructuring, retooling, and reculturing. Inquire Within helps readers design inquiries for their students and also provides ready-to-use inquiry lessons that can be used immediately.

New features of the second edition include:

Three aspects of inquiry--promoting content knowledge, science process skills, and positive attitudes or dispositions

A new chapter of suggested investigations with teacher notes

Strategies for using inquiry methods with ELLs and special education students

Technology incorporated into activities

Teachers will find Inquire Within an excellent professional development resource for advancing to exemplary or mastery level. Novice and pre-service teachers will find the book a useful handbook, and administrators can use the three "Rs" to enhance their schools′ science education program.
