The Intel&reg; Teach Elements: <em>Inquiry in the Science Classroom</em> course is an interactive e-learning experience that is intended for new and veteran science teachers of students in third through eighth grade (ages 8 to 14).  In this course, teachers will build a foundation for scientific inquiry.  They will explore the rationale and research basis, common misconceptions, and specific strategies for incorporating scientific inquiry into science learning, regardless of the science discipline.  The course explains and demonstrates the Scientific Inquiry Phases with relevant classroom examples.  In addition, teachers will learn best practices for improving scientific inquiry through interactive activities.  Direct connections to Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are provided throughout the course and can be connected within the final project as appropriate.
