Oberg, D. (2009). Student learning through inquiry: a case study of one high school class (Canada)

Abstract: Qualitative research methods were used to examine high school students’ experience of an inquiry project. Student inquiry is foundational to the school curriculum in Alberta, Canada. The teacher and teacher-librarian collaboratively planned and implemented an inquiry project to engage students in developing a deeper understanding of a topic that the teachers believed would be of interest and relevance to the students, the need for greater human understanding. The primary study data came from the students who completed three reflections on their experiences, using the SLIM Toolkit forms, developed by researchers at the Center for International Scholarship in School Libraries at Rutgers University, USA.
