Review quote

"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 "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 "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
