Inquiry



Inquiry   Educators become the leaders of a “community of inquiry.” They  do not wait for development to happen rather they foster, provoke, and scaffold it by deepening children’s current understanding so new knowledge systems and new connections among them may be continuously generated.
 (Adapted from Eun 2010, Bruner 1996)
