Skills Students Need for Enquiry

  1. Decision Making
    Students need to be able to make appropriate decisions according to each situation. This might include choosing appropriate decision making strategies, such as: consensus, majority rule, two- thirds majority and secret ballot.

  2. Facilitation Skills
    Students will learn these skills from their teacher role model. Students can begin to use and build upon these skills by facilitating group discussions as part of the enquiry process.

  3. Critical Thinking Skills
    Students need to engage in higher level thinking skills, considering both the factual and values components of information. One example is the careful consideration of the source of information and possible bias.

  4. Conflict Resolution
    Enquiry learning often involves issues that are controversial. Students need well developed communication skills to assist them to deal with conflict.
