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.

Christine D. Clayton (Ed.D., Teachers College, Columbia University) is Associate Professor of Education at Pace University in Pleasantville, New York. She utilized inquiry as a high school history teacher and then engaged in collaborative inquiry with in-service and pre-service teachers through professional development.

James F. Kilbane, Jr. (Ph.D., Indiana University) is Clinical Associate Professor of STEM Education at Cleveland State University. He began using inquiry as a middle school teacher. He has deepened his understanding by helping practicing teachers and pre-service teachers inquire for themselves and with their students.
