Inquiry-Based Learning

From Mind Shift:

In a series of interviews, ten students at Science Leadership Academy (SLA) in Philadelphia describe their positive and challenging experience with inquiry-based learning. SLA is a partnership between The School District of Philadelphia and The Franklin Institute and has become well-known for its project-based, inquiry focused teaching style, which asks students to demonstrate their learning in a variety of ways. Students like the approach, but acknowledge that sometimes it puts them at a disadvantage when it comes to testing.
