Promotional Information

"After years of working with an Inquiry Process model, our librarians read Guided Inquiry and Guided Inquiry Design and participated in Dr. Maniotes' workshops. Dr. Maniotes' insightful seminars and coaching sessions helped our librarians understand that we needed to adjust our focus from imposing the model on project design to using the model to support student learning needs. We have revised our Inquiry Process model and integrated many of the principles of Guided Inquiry Design into the district's language arts curriculum and library instructional practice." -- Mary Keeling, Supervisor, Library Media Services

This book makes visible to students the many things that researchers intuitively do during inquiry and makes it easy to apply for teachers and librarians." - Library Media Connection
