Jamie McKenzie has been
exploring questions, questioning and discovery learning for decades now. His work centers on
how teachers and schools might nurture those habits of mind most likely
to help young ones find and build their own meanings rather than rely
upon the thinking of others.
Jamie is convinced that
effective inquiry is as much a matter of spirit and style as it is a
matter of skill. In this book he outlines the basic elements — what he calls "pillars" — that turn a humdrum reporting experience into something important and delightful.
Based on a lifetime of
work with teachers, students and schools, Jamie offers an approach to learning that is
practical and productive yet inspiring.
