||136,813||A large number of results as expected. Surprisingly, I located several articles quickly that are relevant. Especially one by Sessums (2009) dealing with online inquiry. Too many to scan through quickly.|
||2353||Using the quotation marks and the term English resulted in a much smaller number of entries. There are again several useful articles in particular, Inquiry learning: A narrative inquiry into the experiences of three teachers by Hunsburger (2008). This may provide some answers for me regarding the actual practice of teachers in inquiry-oriented classrooms. The search brings up a lot of discipline areas that are outside my scope.|
||1011||Using the Boolean operator AND narrowed the results but there seems to be less relevancy. There is certainly mention of the secondary area and inquiry learning but English seems to have slipped away into the ether.|
||491||Certainly much fewer results. Again the relevance is limited. A few articles appeared from previous searches. Nothing stands out.|
||2352||Putting “English” first proved successful in bringing up more English and inquiry learning related materials. The article, Reading Skills-What School Librarians Need to Know by Rojtas-Milliner (2010) looks to be very informative. Scrolling further down Kuhlthau (2010) pops out at me, Guided Inquiry: School Libraries in the 21st Century… a useful find. Overall I have not found a great deal using ProQuest as a large number of items centered around teaching English as a second language.|

What do I want to know?
1) Are there any professional criticisms of inquiry learning?
2) How would students learn something like music using inquiry learning?
3) Is inquiry learning suitable for students with disabilities?
