A diverse template to help students craft inquiry questions to produce different types of research projects.
Inquiry-based learning is a method that focuses on student discovery rather than the student being a passive learner in the classroom. They are allowed to be in control of their own learning by asking questions over specific topics and then finding answers to those questions through research and learning activities. Inquiry-based learning is also a great way to incorporate the 21st century critical-thinking skills in the classroom.
This teaching resource is a fantastic template that can be used in a variety of ways. It can be incorporated into any class unit, or it can be a useful tool for a negotiated, flipped learning style to empower students to determine what they would like to learn. Digital Citizenship and Inquiry and Research can be difficult skills for students to maintain. This template gives students a place to document their research information and ensure they keep away from easy downfalls such as plagiarism and distracting resource types that do not contribute to their final presentation.
