This edited work looks at how the concept of inquiry-based learning can be applied to all subject areas. Inquiry learning is similar to many other popular forms of curriculum and instruction, including student-centered and activity-based. Covering History, Social Studies, Geography, Mathematics, English, Language Arts, and Special Education, this practitioner-friendly book includes tools, strategies, sample lesson plans and assessment strategies. In addition, the chapters are aligned with the content standards in each subject area.
