  2. 2. Definitions of Inquiry The scientific method, problem-solving, critical thinking Historical thinking or historical interpretation When students are engaged in inquiry often, their inquiry skills improve greatly (Parker, 2004, p. 324) “Children who have developed their inquiry abilities are able to draw conclusions based on evidence and draw conclusions based on the evidence and judge whether conclusions drawn by others are supported by evidence.” (Parker, 2004, p. 324)
  3. 3. Advantages of Inquiry allowing students to tap into and develop their higher order thinking skills  Students do this by proceeding through scientific method: hypothesizing, finding evidence, coming to conclusions, and testing the strength of their conclusions. By working with these steps repeatedly and often, students obtain the building blocks for problem solving
  4. 4. Disadvantages of Inquiry A disadvantage of using inquiry based learning can be when teachers leave students solely to their own devices. Many experts refer to inquiry based learning as a student centered teaching strategy. However, the strategy can become ineffective when sufficient teacher involvement is not present. Inquiry based learning requires a balance of student and teacher involvement (Brophy & Alleman, 2007, p. 225).
  5. 5. Teachers and Inquiry Teachers can ask questions during the inquiry such as, “How do you know that’s true?” and “Do your sources agree?” (Parker, 2003, p. 324) to spur further thinking. Eventually, students will begin to ask themselves these questions without teacher support as their inquiry skills improve.
  6. 6. Genocide Definitions- The deliberate and systematic extermination of a national, racial, political or cultural group any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; [and] forcibly transferring children of the group to another group
  7. 7. Examples of Genocide Conquest of the Desert in Argentina Armenian Genocide Greek Genocide Rwandan Genocide *Thousands of people were killed in each of theseinstances of genocide

  9. 9. Why? The Holocaust is just one example of Genocide What are some of the reasons why a Genocide such as the Holocaust, or other examples of Genocide would occur?
