Class Description

In today’s world, where information can be accessed by the click of a button, teaching students to ask great questions, evaluate sources, decipher what information is useful, and find relevant answers is crucial. Developing great research skills makes for independent, responsible, life-long learners! Each semester in Research through Guided Inquiry, students complete an entire research project, including a paper and presentation. Students select their own topics from within a big-picture idea we study as a class. Throughout the course, students walk through the Guided Inquiry Design research model to complete the research project. They will: IMMERSE in a big-picture idea that serves as the theme for their inquiry; EXPLORE potential topics to discover what peaks their interests; IDENTIFY a research question that will guide their study; GATHER relevant information from diverse sources; SYNTHESIZE that information into a product that will be shared to benefit others; and EVALUATE their research and learning experiences.
