Go! Ask, Act, Achieve

Go! Ask, Act, Achieve | Research | Scoop.it
INFOhio Curriculum Toolbox's insight:

O! Ask, Act Achieve helps 6th-10th graders, students who are just learning research skills, manage a long-term research project. Faced with a large project, students often become overwhelmed and procrastinate. To counteract that tendency, GO! breaks the research process down into three smaller subsections, and then into steps within the subsection. Each step features links to a variety of INFOhio databases and products as well as websites with mind mapping tools, note taking strategies, and presentation ideas.

Dimensions of Inquiry

Dimensions of Inquiry | Research | Scoop.it
IMatrix
INFOhio Curriculum Toolbox's insight:

Creating an environment of inquiry in a classroom requires skill, practice and encouragement. First and foremost teachers must understand and believe in the value of inquiry across all subject areas and be comfortable with the inquiry process. This process can be best taught by the school library media specialist in collaboration with the content area teacher so that the inquiry skills are learned in concert with the content. The IMatrix is designed to give teachers and media specialists easy access to resources which not only help explain inquiry, but also help teach inquiry skills to students.

The six Dimensions of Inquiry were created through an environmental scan of various information inquiry models. From these models, the Dimensions of Inquiry were synthesized. The dimensions sometimes overlap or may cycle back to a previous dimension when a different direction is needed. Which of the Dimensions would you like to explore?
