Inspiring Curiosity is a practical guide for secondary school librarians as they collaborate with teachers and students to develop inquiry-based research projects. With success stories from librarians all over the U.S. illustrating how they’ve guided teachers and students through the research process, this book provides strategies for using memorable events to activate students’ natural curiosity and activities for generating essential questions for exploration.

The book includes:

  • Ideas and resources to help librarians be more effective in research and inquiry.
  • Tips for developing search strategies, locating and curating resources, evaluating sources and celebrating students’ inquiry beyond the traditional research paper.
  • Lessons and assessment ideas to keep librarians current on information literacy topics.

Written for librarians by a librarian, this book will help librarians collaborate with classroom teachers on inquiry projects and offers new ideas and insights to inspire them in the process.
