Week 7 Reflection: Myth-Busting, Inquiry-Based Learning, and the Social Sciences

I created a practical, how-to video on using inquiry-based learning in the social sciences.  Derek Muller, creator of the video, “Khan Academy and the Effectiveness of Science Videos”, points to the passive transmission of knowledge and the lack of ‘myth-busting’ in science education as reasons that students don’t learn basic facts.  I’m really passionate about inquiry-based learning and I plan to involve more of it in my future teaching.  Hope you find it helpful!
