Inquiry Cycles

We are discussing inquiry cycles at school at the moment. We have adopted the Big6 and Super3 school wide for our student Information Seeking Process (ISP) but I think inquiry needs more… more something…

Carol Kuhlthau has a guided inquiry cycle which I really like (I actually started summarising the book before we moved here – pervious post here but know I have bought it on Kindle). Here is a completely brilliant presentation about inquiry. Note page 36. These are Kuhlthau’s stages of inquiry.

I have used this terminology in my latest unit but I combined Immerse and Explore. I am looking forward to discussing this further with our Elementary department.
