  • Boot Camp 2014 Session 2: Setting Your Sights on Inquiry: Strategies for Launching Research Projects that Promote Inquiry in Students

    Shifting from fact-gathering to inquiry as the root of research projects can be a tough adjustment! In this one-hour webinar, we'll talk about the early stages of inquiry-based research and examine strategies for frontloading inquiry research with both scaffolding and space for open-ended questioning.
