With or without the Common Core, there is a renewed focus on inquiry in K-12 education. Students are expected to demonstrate proficiency in research skills, but they seldom have a clear understanding of how to grow their learning – how to shift from superficial, fact-finding overviews, to deep, targeted, and detailed evidence collection.
