    This is an important aspect of doing inquiry in the classroom and it would
    be good to have more models for this. I think the best way of communicating
    this might be through having teachers who are good at it describe what they
    do early in the year to create a culture that's conducive to inquiry.

    Here's a reference that might be helpful. I wish I knew of more of these
    kinds of resources and hope others will offer suggestions.

    This is a chapter from an book on inquiry mostly written by my staffmates
    at the Institute for Inquiry. It's at
    You can print it out as html or a pdf. If you are interested in the rest of
    the book, access it at

    If you find out other resources that are helpful, please send them to the
