What is An
Inquiry Study?

So, Why Use Barbara Stripling's Model?
Why Use an
Inquiry Model?

"Having skills is not the same as using skills or doing something with skills. There is more to learning than what they learn; there are the why and how of learning" (Wallace,5 ).
Then they use a variety of different resources to investigate.
The learner identifies a question, problem, or a topic that stimulates them.
A model works as the students' guide throughout their inquiry. They know by referring to the model, what is expected at each point.
A model is useful for teachers and students to plan out their inquiry.
There are many different models to use, but Barbara Stripling's model is one that is accessible for elementary school students. They have already had experience with each of the stages.
21st Century Tools to Spice Up Your Inquiries
The Benefits of Inquiry
Prepares students for lifelong learning (Kuhlthau Guided Inquiry 4).
Students, the school librarian, and the teachers all work to build a community of learning (Kuhlthau Guided Inquiry 5).
According to the American Association of School Librarians, inquiry-based learning,
"stimulates critical thinking through the use of learning activities that involve application, analysis, evaluation, and creativity" (Empowering Learners, 25).
Because projects are student-driven, students experience a sense of independence and excitement.
Students then create meaning of newly acquired information, linking it to prior knowledge or generating new thoughts.
Some kind of sharing or discussion occurs to share this new information.
The final stage is students reflecting upon the experience and ask new questions.
When students are aware of where there are and where they need to go. They begin to practice independence.
"The six-phase Stripling Inquiry Model makes good sense for school librarians who seek a structure for collaborating with teachers to bring inquiry into learning process" (Jansen 11).
Consistency and collaboration is the key to the successful Inquiry-based study.
Connect to old knowledge and Gain new knowledge.
Reflect on new learning
and revise questions.
Ask questions and make predictions.
Apply new understanding. Express and share new ideas.
Make connections between new information and prior knowledge and draw conclusions.
Use various resources to find and evaluate information. Ask new questions based on discoveries.
