Next message: Mitchell, Gayle: "RE: [Teacher-talkinquiry] Extending Kits To Do Inquiry"
Thanks, Scott. This is a concern of mine given the "required" units we are
expected to "cover" here in our district. I'm hoping this will work, but as
our units are very large...lots of "hit a lick" type coverage... I still
wonder how it will work with inquiry method and still be able to get through
what I am expected to do in the year's time.
