  • Colors denote formality of the mode: Black= Both formal and informal inquiry Green= informal inquiry only Blue = formal inquiry only
  • Colors denote formality of the mode: Black= Both formal and informal inquiry Green= informal inquiry only Blue = formal inquiry only
  • These are phases of the modes of inquiry, they represent operations of the modes of inquiry They are sequential except for Instruction which is concurrent with the other modes
