Supplying classroom-tested lessons and unit plans that can serve as templates, this book demonstrates exactly how to integrate and implement Guided Inquiry Design (R) (GID) theory into practice.

Guided Inquiry is an approach that many educators-thought leaders and practitioners alike-are finding to be well-suited to information-age learning and a way to meet Common Core Standards. For many teachers, librarians, middle school leaders, and curriculum specialists, the biggest challenge is finding examples of guided inquiry in practice applicable to their own context. This guide offers an easy solution, offering ready-to-use templates and models for implementing Guided Inquiry Design (R) (GID) in the middle school learning environment. With each supplied lesson laid out according to the session plan templates from GID and a thorough description of the ideal inquiry process from beginning to end, integration and implementation of GID is attainable.

Besides showing how to put GID to best use to achieve five kinds of learning through inquiry, the book provides an explicit structure for developing instructional partnerships and collaborative teams within the school and with the larger community. It enables teachers, school librarians, and other educational partners to consider and plan for achieving outcomes that bring about deep understanding while also addressing curricular goals. Readers will be better equipped to provide an authentic learning environment using collaboration, discussion, and reflection embedded in the sessions, thereby helping their students to be able to think creatively to solve problems.

Answers the needs of teachers and librarians who are seeking actual lesson plans using the GID concepts specifically at the 6th-8th grade levels
