Great article because change is so difficult, especially if it something you believe in. So we are assuming that inquiry based teaching is the problem? Are there any studies that show this? I think we need to be careful before we jump into that assumption. Also inquiry based teaching can take many forms and needs a certain structure to work.

Hi Dina, Project Follow Through is a good start if you’re interested. Also Kirschner, Sweller and Clark’s paper on minimally guided instruction. I think there’s a place for inquiry but for me, it’s well towards the end of a unit when expertise is secure.
