"I had the insight of how important it was allowing students to have a hands-on approach to science learning ~ to take a concept idea and to explore it further than the format of the provided material."
"Physics was always something I dreaded hearing about, taking as a class in college, and (unfortunately) teaching. I have made a 180 degree turn about in this regard due to this program with actively planning for/using Inquiry. This course has already given me a better understanding of complex subjects AND the confidence to prepare engaging material."
"I definitely think it has improved and challenged my knowledge and thinking skills. I feel more confident in many constructs in Physics. I believe I will take this to classrooms and will recommend more Inquiry lessons to teachers."
"The course really improved my skills as a thinker as the book guided me through. It has helped me to think about allowing students to explore further concept ideas, and have them write or verbalize it to me to check concept understanding."
