5 Inquiring in and out of the classroom.
Reading the inquiry process that Harris took the class was more than just 'reading' about what inquiry is. The students used all and every available resources they had available to them, even their basic senses. Harris shows that inquiry can take place anywhere they go and demonstrates this with his class by having them follow ta scientific approach to infer their inquiries. Students question their findings and then create an explanation of their findings for future use (in the article's case a project). The students then post their data on a graphic organizer and then share the information with the rest of the class, justifying their findings to their peers. Overall, the method used in the article is a positive way to have students interact in the classroom.
