    George,

    My experiences have been that it is a gradual change. You and your class
    need to feel more comfortable working in this type of environment. The
    hardest part is to be willing to change, but you sound like you are ready
    for it and so is your class. For me, the "project" is the integral part of
    the lesson. I like to start my lesson out with an inquiry based activity
    and build on that with the input/research of the students. You'll be
    surprised to see that your lecture material will come out in the
    discussions. Here is were you can emphasize your lesson objectives. It
    exciting - not only for the students, but for the teacher as well.

    Best of luck!

    Subject: [Teacher-talkinquiry] Transition to inquiry

    Hello!
    I have viewed the first video and am very excited to learn more about
    inquiry in the classroom. My question is what time frame should teachers
    expect to transition from a mostly traditional setting to a setting that we
    saw in the video. I have tried inquiry based projects, but I am stuck in a
    more lecture setting at the junior high level. I don't like it, the kids
    don't like and I am ready for a change. Any suggestions or thoughts would
    be appreciated.
    Thanks
