Inquiry-Based Learning


By asking students to discover knowledge on their own with guidance from their teachers, inquiry-based learning can be deeply integral to Meaningful Student Involvement, both in the classroom and throughout the education system.

Working from the assumptions that every teacher of every subject can share equal responsibility for teaching and evaluating skills, educators can infuse inquiry-based learning in schools today by creating performance rubrics focused on student competencies, and by making skills-oriented growth 60% of their grade.

Any classroom can be on the path to supporting inquiry-based learning, in turn nurturing Meaningful Student Involvement for every learner. (Markham, 2013)
