Socials 8-1/8-2: Inquiry introduction

Today I started by discussing the process that is involved in a personal inquiry.  I used the example of the work I've been engaged in to develop better ways to engage and empower students through the use of presentation technology.  Without a doubt, coming up with a good inquiry question is the hardest part for people who've never engaged in this process before.  Don't worry; that will come with practice.  Here is a simple schematic of how I envision the process for you:

Note that the initial question often has to be adapted after
some research.

I was very satisfied with the way everyone worked today. I hope you enjoy the weekend.  Next week we start the fourth and final term!
