Abstract

This paper reports on the "in-the-field" inquiry learning activities developed for a pre-service teacher science methods course. The students used hand-held PALM technology plus commercially available test kits to determine the water quality of a small stream. The paper discusses how "in-the-field" inquiry strategies were developed and modeled for the students along with a general discussion of inquiry methods of instruction.
