About the I-Search

" I think one of the biggest benefits of using the I-Search was that the students chose their questions and they became invested. It was easier to keep them focused and on track and they were much more excited about what they were doing and because of that I think they were willing to stretch a little more. If you said, 'Well I think you need to move this way with your question, ' they were willing to do it. Where as if it were something you imposed on them, 'You will research molecules, ' they might not be willing to go that extra little bit. "
