Integrating Inquiry and Technology
into the Middle School Curriculum

Make It Happen! is an approach that improves middle school education for students with diverse learning abilities. In the Make It Happen! approach, interdisciplinary teams of teachers design and implement inquiry-based I-Search Units and integrate technology into these units in meaningful ways to benefit students. Make It Happen! is the result of 10 years of research, evaluation, and technical assistance at Education Development Center, Inc. (EDC) in Newton, Massachusetts.
