Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Wrapping Up the Immersion Heater Investigation - Section 3: Student Opportunity Time


Given the nature of inquiry tasks, it is difficult to predict how much time to provide for collecting data.  Here's a description of the value of providing some "self-direction" time at the end of an inquiry activity and the types of opportunities students have during that time.
