Reflection: Student Led Inquiry What Is Curiosity? - Section 2: Guided Investigation


I want students to understand that curiosity drives inquiry and exploration. It is what drives those to discover ground-breaking things. It is what motivates people to persevere at a task or a research field. It is crucial to good research and innovation. This is why I have them interview multiple people over time. I want them to get a wide perspective of what people think about curiosity and how it had driven them.
