The 2008 Robert H. Carleton Lecture provides the content for Chapter 4. The chapter centers on the themes of teaching science as inquiry. After a brief introduction to the history of inquiry in science education, the national standards are used as the basis for a detailed discussion of inquiry as learning outcomes and teaching strategies. The concluding sections discuss the role of inquiry and preparation of 21st-century skills.
