Inquiry in Tandem

Student and Teacher Learning in Secondary Schools

Christine D. Clayton and James F. Kilbane, Jr.

Inquiry in Tandem explores how engaging in teacher and student inquiry simultaneously impacts teacher practice and student learning in powerful ways.  With a focus on secondary schools and all content areas we encourage inquiry because it is good practice. Teachers and students are active doers and thinkers who ask questions, seek information, and develop thoughtful responses. This book presents a model of professional development that fosters this type of deep learning by teachers and students.
