ASLA XXIII Biennial Conference - Lee FitzGerald - Exciting change is happening in Guided Inquiry theory and practice. Following the publication of Guided Inquiry Design: A framework for inquiry in your school, (Kuhltau, et al) in 2012, a clear blueprint for preparation and running of Guided Inquiry units in our schools exists. The 2013, the International Research Symposium, Digital Youth, Inquiry, and the Future of the School Library is taking place in April in New Jersey. With my colleague and Head of History at Loreto Kirribilli, I am presenting at the April symposium, on developments in Guided Inquiry at my school. My presentation at ASLA XXIII will cover changes in the theory and practice of Guided Inquiry at Loreto Kirribilli, as well as reporting on developments from the symposium in New Jersey.
