Comprehension and Collaboration: Inquiry Circles in Action
Relevant and easily transferable
I knew both authors from their previous works, so I was confident I would like the book. The book is written in a conversational manner, but includes research to back up the information they present. Having taught using the Primary Years Programme, which emphasizes the inquiry approach they advocate I was a bit surprised that they did not reference this framework, but maybe they are not aware of ...
Appreciative Inquiry: A Positive Revolution in Change
David L Cooperrider
Excellent resource, easy read
I love the idea of switching thinking from problem resolution to thinking about the end goal and using the power of positive outcomes to achieve the end goal.
Meditation As Contemplative Inquiry: When Knowing Becomes Love
Zajonc provides a practical glimpse of contemplative practices
I spent the summer reading passages of this excellent how-to book on meditative and contemplative practices, and felt enriched every single time I picked it up. It is, however, sometimes dense reading - but to be fair, the work invites one to stop and do the exercises, and so its pace should perhaps be slow at times in order to allow the messages to flower. Exercises don't come easy to facile, ...

I bought this book last semester for a grad course. I have to confess that I hardly read it but it was useful and intersting (the little I read).Sold it.

This time I am keeping it for good. other classmates ...

Thin Book of Appreciative Inquiry (2nd edition) (Thin Book Series)
Sue Annis Hammond
Thin Book Publishing Company
Organizational Change & Productivity Begins with What's Right
I was referred to this book when I started exploring organizational change - as in, what makes humans "engage" and get really excited to think big and proceed from the positive. It's brevity belies its wisdom. This book is accessible and applicable. I highly recommend it for all businesses or organizations that have meetings (so - every biz or org).
Designing Social Inquiry
Robert O. Keohane
Princeton University Press
All the advantages and disadvantages of statistical reasoning applied to qualitative political science
This book takes the basic logic of statistical inference and applies it to qualitative research design in political science. As several reviewers note, it is not a book on statistics, nor indeed does it pretend to be. However, it extends the logic of statistical research design into nonquantitative research. That much it does very well. By thinking about how to test hypotheses and how to ...

Science Notebooks: Writing About Inquiry
How-To implement in your classroom... TOMORROW
Don't I wish all professional development books were written like this? Clear, concise, with easy to implement instructions for how to actually DO IT in your classroom. It's a short book... a quick read, and much extraneous waxing on how effective this technique is has been omitted to keep it simple. I appreciate how the authors are sensitive to a need for most of us to follow "the ...
The Art of Inquiry

an indispensable guide written by two gifted researchers
I teach from this book in my graduate-level qualitative research classes, and I am glad to recommend it both as an introduction to qualitative approaches to psyche and as an easy-to-read exposition on the history and philosophical underpinnings of depth psychology. Joining the nuts and bolts of practice with an appreciation for being present to psyche, the book offers many useful tips and ...

An engaging read!
This book is a must for any teacher seeking to enliven their classrooms in a time where students are increasingly thinking, questioning and showing interest in the issues that affect their lives and the world around them.

Inquiry into Physics
Vern J. Ostdiek
Donald J. Bord
Excellent Physics Book!
I just finished my Bachelor's Degree, so I've gone through quite a few books over the past couple years, and this book is the best one that I'd bought. In fact, I sold all of my used text books except this one - it is that good. It doesn't just go over the facts & formulas of physics, but the history behind much of what we know today, who discovered or invented it, and then puts it into context ...
From Inquiry to Academic Writing: A Text and Reader
From Inquiry to Academic Writing Review
I like the product and how quickly it was delivered but the book is definitely more used than I thought it was going to be. The covers fold out a bit which is annoying and there is some odd highlighting on some pages, but overall I am content with my purchase.
Inquiry and the National Science Education Standards: A Guide for Teaching and Learning
Committee on the Development of an Addendum to the National Science Education Standards on Scientific Inquiry
National Research Council
National Academies Press
helpful, but not great for secondary classrooms
I have read this through more than once, and find much of it to be very thoughtful, but not terribly appropriate for my classroom (I teach a mixed 7-12 grades class of special needs teens). I especially appreciate the blend of theory and practice, and many of the ideas in the book are well illustrated with real world examples. It is a good introduction to the topic, but not quite what I was ...
Appreciative Inquiry: Change at the Speed of Imagination
Jane Magruder Watkins
Bernard J. Mohr
Appreciative Inquiry an Orientation Toward Life and Work
Appreciative Inquiry is a way of seeing and being in the world. ... Appreciative Inquiry applied, whether as a planning process or an evaluative process, becomes empowering and life-affirming in any human system. (page 191) The key to sustaining the momentum is to build an "appreciative eye" into all the organization's systems, procedures, and ways of working. (page 152) AI is not simply a tool ...
Shop Class as Soulcraft: An Inquiry into the Value of Work
Matthew B. Crawford
Need more stars, please!
Where's that sixth star when you need it? "Shop Class as Soulcraft" is thrilling, not like a Tom Clancy novel is thrilling, but thrilling to see someone as articulate as Crawford explode the myth that what America needs is millions more "knowledge workers" creating PowerPoint presentations about abstract concepts and taking out their frustrations with their meaningless jobs in fight clubs and ...
