In this second edition, science educator Douglas Llewellyn combines clear-cut insights with practical suggestions for developing teaching competencies and strategies to implement inquiry-based instruction—a teaching strategy strongly endorsed by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the National Research Council, and the National Science Teachers Association.

Aligned with NSES standards and written for educators seeking to cultivate learners' sense of discovery and critical thinking skills, Inquire Within, Second Edition, focuses on showing teachers how to implement inquiry activities using the three "R's"—restructuring, retooling, and reculturing. The author provides examples that match common curricular objectives and demonstrates how teachers can modify current lesson plans rather than creating new ones.

Offering ready-to-use inquiry lessons and teacher-friendly materials for students in grades 3–8, this edition’s updates include:

  • Three aspects of inquiry—promoting content knowledge, science process skills, and positive attitudes or dispositions
  • A new chapter of suggested investigations with teacher notes
  • Strategies for using inquiry methods with English Language Learners and special education students
  • Activities that incorporate technology

This comprehensive guide is an invaluable resource for practitioners at every level—including elementary and middle school science teachers, principals, science teacher leaders and specialists, staff development planners, curriculum supervisors, and college professors.
