Guided Inquiry prepares today's learners for an uncertain future by providing the education that enables them to make meaning from myriad sources of information in a rapidly evolving world. The companion book, Guided Inquiry: Learning in the 21st Century, explains what Guided Inquiry is, and why it is now essential now. This book, Guided Inquiry Design: A Framework for Inquiry in Your School, explains how to do it. The first three chapters provide an overview of the Guided Inquiry design framework, identify the eight phases of the Guided Inquiry process, summarize the research that grounds Guided Inquiry, and describe the five tools of inquiry that are essential to implementation. The following chapters detail the eight phases in the Guided Inquiry design process, providing examples at all levels from pre-K through 12th grade and concluding with recommendations for building Guided Inquiry in your school. The book is for pre-K-12 teachers, school librarians, and principals who are interested in and actively designing an inquiry approach to curricular learning that incorporates a wide range of resources from the library, the Internet, and the community. Staff of community resources, museum educators, and public librarians will also find the book useful for achieving student learning goals.

"The opening chapter provides an overview of the eight-step Guided Inquiry Design Process... Subsequent chapters delve deeply into each step, backing it up with research, and showing how the larger team contributes to it. The final chapter explores 'Building Guided Inquiry in Your School.' Logs, diagrams, charts, and session plans clarify the process further and give you practical help for incorporating Guided Inquiry Design into your library program." - School Librarian's Workshop "Drawing on experiences and research, the work will encourage, enable, and support the use of guided inquiry into any school, using examples and supporting findings. This is a welcome addition to any professional development collection in any academic setting." - ARBA "This research-based framework walks teachers through the inquiry process with a focus on collaboration and modeling... This book makes visible to students the many things that researchers intuitively do during inquiry and makes it easy to apply for teachers and librarians." - Library Media Connection "Guided Inquiry Design: A Framework for Inquiry in Your School provides a wealth of information on how to use guided inquiry to create a student-focused learning environment ... This book is immensely useful for K-12 teachers and school librarians, as well as for academic librarians who are interested in adapting the guided inquiry process for one-shot information literacy workshops or semester-long research skills courses." - Endnotes: The Journal of the New Members Round Table
