Our Director of Student Inquiry and Research, Sara Kelley-Mudie was recently asked to do a webinar for InfOhio, Ohio’s PreK-12 Digital Library, discussing the process of inquiry and building questions. Below is a link to the recording and a quick overview of her presentation.
When doing research, students and their teachers, often want to move quickly to the process of finding and evaluating sources. However, the latter stages of the research process often break down when students have not spent sufficient time selecting a topic and developing meaningful questions to drive their research. Sara discussed strategies for helping students develop questioning skills and for integrating question literacy into the opening stages of inquiry.
