Underlying Principles of Inquiry
  1. A learner constructs knowledge by adding new information into an existing framework of understanding.

  2. Developmental levels must be considered when planning instruction.

  3. Learning is a social activity (collaborative).

  4. Assessment must be formative as well as summative.

  5. Instruction must be differentiated to support every researcher from novice to expert.

  6. Research process skills must be taught in relation to the curriculum (integrated), not in isolation as a pullout program.
