Inquiry Learning through the School Library
(Inquiry in the Library)

Inquiry learning (also known as problem-based or resource-based learning) is a focus of the Iowa Core Curriculum (ICC). In this class, a lesson/unit plan that is inquiry based and involves a collaboration between a classroom teacher and a teacher librarian will be developed. Course content includes the Characteristics of Effective Instruction (CEI) with a special emphasis on inquiry-based learning. An information problem-solving model will be used as a scaffold for the inquiry process.
