Abstract

In the 2013 Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), the term "inquiry" is included in the dimension called Practices. This broader term better specifies the range of cognitive, social, and physical practices that characterize what scientists use to investigate and build models and theories about the world. It emphasizes the expectation that students will engage in the practices of science rather than learning about them secondhand.
