Teaching by the Inquiry method is, in theory, letting students explore and find answers to questions in which they are interested, using a multitude of resources, no longer relying on teacher-directed activities. The teacher is the guide of facilitator as students take an active role in their learning and are involved in the decision-making and assessment process. The author seeks to understand how the Inquiry method can be implemented in the classroom setting and how it effects learning, as well as whether or not the method is successful.
