About the Author

Julia Gooding grew up in a small town near Pittsburgh but did not pursue teaching until she moved to South Carolina at the age of twenty-four. While there she taught virtually every science discipline, wrote and implemented a variety of curricula, and became National Board Certified. Now, sixteen years later, she is back in Pennsylvania and pursuing a doctoral degree at Robert Morris University. She is committed to challenging all students, regardless of their learning styles, a characteristic that is inherent in the uniqueness of Inquiry by Design. It reflects both her creativity and her understanding of science and children.

Bill Metz began his career in 1966 as a third grade teacher in Philadelphia. During the seventies, he completed his doctorate at Temple University while continuing to work as a teacher and as a general contractor on weekends and summers. After a stint as a middle school science teacher, he changed his career to science supervision, a position from which he retired in 2002. He taught graduate school at three universities, wrote and implemented a number of science curricula, and trained hundreds of teachers. Inquiry by Design is his third book, taking only twenty years to go from dream to fruition.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By S. Brandenburg on March 6, 2008
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Lots of great ideas to start from when making a science inquiry lesson. This book provides many activities that will take more than two days to complete. This is not a book for one day lesson plans, unless you can adapt a certain portion of an activity. Overall, not a bad investment.
