From Inquiry to Action

inquiry_to_action_coverThe forthcoming book, From Inquiry to Action: Civic Engagement with Project-Based learning in All Content Areas, by Steven Zemelman (with a foreword by Sonia Nieto) contains projects for civic-engagement that help students become, not only college- and career-ready, but citizen-ready by researching the issues that matter to them. When students inquire into those issues and know that their arguments will be read with a skeptical eye next week by the city council or published in the local newspaper, they’re eager to research and find relevant information in nonfiction texts to bolster their claims. They also become committed to write, revise, edit, and correct their grammar and want to think broadly about what reasoning will be effective with their audience.
