What Makes a Good Inquiry-Based Lesson

1.  Clear directions

2.  Laboratory goals must be:

          * well-defined   

          * understandable

          * reasonable in number

          * measurable

3.  Well organized

4.  When appropriate, the statement of the problem could be in the form of a real-life application, to motivate and convey the importance of the topic. 

5.  Whenever possible, relevant applications should be part of the laboratory either as the main goal or as an extension to illustrate the importance of the topic.

6.  It is desirable to include extensions for each goal in every laboratory to challenge students to work further with the topics.

7.  Students should also be encouraged to explore new ideas that they may have in the process of answering the laboratory questions.
