Book Review: Dive into Inquiry


Dive into Inquiry, written by Trevor MacKenzie, introduces the increasingly-popular concept of inquiry-based learning. In addition to defining “inquiry,” the author illustrates best practices of employing this method of teaching by referring to his own narrative in the classroom. The strategies for teaching inquiry-based lessons are categorized into Four Types of Student Inquiry and interactive examples of each type are provided throughout the book. This book is easy to read and allows all teachers – novice and expert, alike – to gain best practices in planning, teaching, and assessing students in authentic and engaging learning experiences.
