Approaches to Social Inquiry

This book is part of the Building Conceptual Understandings in the Social Sciences (BCUSS) series. It describes a social inquiry approach to teaching and learning and gives examples of how this approach can be applied in the classroom. The examples consist of two unit snapshots (Helping Hands and You Can’t Catch Me) and one unit overview (Tongariro National Park: Whose Park Is It Anyway?), which illustrates the social inquiry approach in more detail. Teachers can select from and adapt the ideas to develop their own social studies programmes that use a social inquiry approach. Guiding questions are included that will support teachers as they do this.
