This is Inquiry…..Right?
If you are starting to question whether what you’re doing with your students is indeed an inquiry-based project (as opposed to topical research), why not use a rubric to help in your assessment and reflection? I found an amazing rubric at the Galileo Educational Network Association. Download it, and keep a copy close by for reference before, during, and after your learning experience. Better yet, use it in collaboration with a colleague!
And, don’t stop there! Galileo.org is an outstanding support “dedicated to improving student, teacher and leaders learning through creating and researching 21st century learning environments.”
