S49: Target Inquiry: Teacher Designed and Tested Inquiry Materials that Really Work

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Next Generation Science Standards expect teachers to develop an inquiry-based science program for students in which students learn science content while engaging in key science and engineering practices. Unfortunately, many teachers have little experience with inquiry instruction. Furthermore, science inquiry is a complex process incorporating many instructional methods making the development of high quality inquiry materials difficult.  In this symposium, teachers will present inquiry materials they developed and tested in their own classrooms as part of the Target Inquiry program. Each presentation will include an overview of the materials, important aspects of their successful classroom implementation, and student assessments.
